DONE: Line-Numbered textfile
« on: March 10, 2010, 10:05:18 AM »
I have decided to start this little youtube-game bymyself, where I seek for videos from 1 viewers to 100 000 000 viewers.
And for that, I need a checklist from 1 to 100 000 000.

So, i need someone to make me a program, which creates textfile with lines "from" "to" and user can choose where to start and where to quit, and the max number should be 100 000 000.
And if possible + bonus for you, make it so that in every line there is space after number.

Can't you do this in Word using Autofill or a macro? I'm not really sure what you are trying to do as I don't know what you mean by "user can choose where to start". Start what?

This is trivial to write...but you do realise that a text file with 100,000,000 lines will be over 1 gigabyte in size, right?  Trying to manipulate that in most text editors will be an exercise in futility.

 (see attachment in previous post)

Exactly what I needed!
This is simple and powerful, thanks a ton!

Also, it makes my processor to roll!  ;D

P.S You`re really good @ making nice and clean interfaces.


EDIT: Total filesize for 1 to 100 000 000 file is: 1 063 369.

AND

My notepad started complaining that its too big for her - I have to use something else :P

ALSO

Wordpad opens it nicely in aprox. 1 minute.

You may be able to find a text editor that only opens a "window" into the file, instead of opening the entire file in memory.  I don't know of any off-hand.  But back in the old Dos days you only had 640KB so you couldn't just load a MB file in ram.  The editor would seek through the file on disk and load a portion of it.

Great to hear.  I'll move this to the finished section.
