I do not use extremely large text files, but the largest text file that I have ever heard of that has been opened by notepad is 0.5 GB. I do not know anything about the relation of computer hardware.
Now, I have never tested the 0.5 GB myself, just read about it a few years ago.

I also read somewhere about notepad having a limit on total lines in the file. Do not remember what that number was, just know that it was over a million.

Hope this helps,

Chris, it's not a big deal, but do you know if Notepad has a maximum
limit to how big of a text file can be opened? results from researching
says it is basically limited by the computer’s hardware configuration
(how much memory, hard drive capacity, etc.). the largest I found was
mentioned to be 512 MB but was theoretically estimated to be 16 TB.
I also noted that the larger the file is, the longer it takes Notepad to
open it, and the length of time depends on other technical specs of the
computer used.

yes, you can have multiple notepad documents open at the same time, I am
a big notepad user and do it all the time.

Thanks for responding.

Some times I have to have several files open at a time.

I will see if Notepad can do that, I know that notepad++ will do that.

Our instructor in our class says we should use notepad++

That's is why I am trying to use it.

Thank you

would Notepad be of use to you? it comes with any edition of Windows, no
need to download a seperate program.

Has anybody worked with Notepad++?

I just started using notepad++

I noticed Jaws does not when you are trying to highlite text.

If some one could point me in the direction for some wordpad help.

The other question I have is there a better text editor that would work
better with Jaws.

My tutor and I are coding web pages.

Any help would be appreciated.
