Hi.
My site makes a lot of use of flat file databases. When on the site is is one singe large file (aprox 45 meg) but this batabase is changed with new data every month. All the data is stored in seperate files on My computer system and is updated and added to throught the month. Typicaly each file on my computer is about 10 meg so as to make it easier to find errors and edit as required. Problem arises when I need to merge all the files into one large file. Copy and paste with 50 meg of text is quite a task. Is there any alternatives to notpad that are faster and allow for a larger filesize?

Thanks

mack.

Bote my fav (EditPlus) and UltraEdit will handle files that large. EditPlus does it in Ram, and UltraEdit does it disk based.
