Description

This is a small program I made to read Large text files without opening them completely,but reading a number of given lines at a time.
I made this app to read the 10gb text files that came with the facebook urls posted by skullsecurity.org

    The user interface is far from intuitive. Also, it only allows to display the first x lines of a file without even saying how many lines it contains. What if I want to see the last 5 lines? Do I set the number of lines to an arbitrarily high number and scroll to the end? But even doing that e.g. setting the number of lines to 1 million doesn't work: The program seems to freeze. It might eventually come back but I haven't had the patience to wait longer than 5 minutes. Sorry, that's just no solution. (I am talking about a 40 gigabyte text file here. To get such a file, download Wikipedia (seriously!))

    Given that I use this many times a day for viewing large bioinformatics files I perhaps ought to add some feedback. I ticked OK for support because I have not needed any, so have no way of judging. There should be a 'not known' box. I suspect that it would be possible to make text searching a little faster, which is why design is good, and not excellent

    well worked! for my win7+4G, it succeeded in show first 30 lines of 2G text file in 1 second, but when its 100 lines, it shows "no response" for a while

    It can show only a few lines from beginning of a file.
