"VEDIT PLUS is superb. It blows every editor I've used out of the water for speed and functionality".
      John Schmidt, Phoenix, AZ

VEDIT - The Fastest Editor Available.

Speed is critical when editing huge files. Only VEDIT has the power to "realistically" edit 20Mb, 100Mb and larger files. VEDIT is 10 times faster than any other editor. With huge files, VEDIT is 100 to 1000 times (not percent!) faster than some other popular editors.

Nasty 100+ Mb files? No problem for VEDIT.

Only the fastest 3 editors were tested.


Benchmark Details

  • Computer: Pentium 166Mhz with 32 Megs RAM and 1.6 Gig. IDE drive.

  • Global search and replace consists of changing all occurrences of "lines" to "lines."

  • Test file has one occurrence per line; each line is about 50 characters long:

This is a moderately nice long line with # xxxxx

Many editors can handle 2 megabyte text files with reasonable speed. Very few editors can edit 20 megabyte files. Only VEDIT can realistically edit 100 megabyte and larger files.
