NOt a programming question I know but related to a program I am writing, and probably a problem only likely to be encountered by programmers.

"Then don't use a 'standard windows program'.

I've use vim in Cygwin under Windows XP to edit a 400MB file.

I don't want to do it regularly, but it worked.

EDIT: Of course, installing Cygwin just so you can edit a file is probably too much, but you should consider non standard Windows programs.

I'm not sure what the limitation of Notepad++ is, and you may consider it a 'standard', but there may be a modern third-party editor which will do the job."

"There is an editor, available either in Lite version or Professional version. This is EditPad pro from JGSoft. I registered it several years ago and kept registering the upgrades as well.

I've used Large Text File Viewer for reading huge server logs in the past. It doesn't require an install and is pretty simple to use.
