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
- Reading Large Text Files
- Reading a given Number of lines at a time,not the whole file
- Easy to use
- Copy the text viewed
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.
