[QUOTE=gd_barnes;596469]I get a bunch of gibberish when I try to open this file.[/QUOTE]


Notepad++ is working and the best and fastest program ever, the rest is windows junk :/

[QUOTE=gd_barnes;596489]They are ordered by k-value. If you do your searching by k-value that is how they will be saved.
<snip>[/quote]D'oh! I should have seen that! :blush:[quote]I'm not sure why the line-feeds would be different amongst different operating systems. I also don't know why simply having different line-feeds would mess up the entire display of the file. It's like the ASCII characters are completely different regardless of the different line-feeds. I was able to open it in WordPad.[/QUOTE]If memory serves, old M$ OS's use CR-LF while Unix(alike) OS's just use LF. I also don't see how that would mess up the other chars. I thought it might have had to do with the encoding. NotePad might assume ANSI, which might cause trouble for UTF text files. I have noticed that when I copy-paste text into a NotePad window, and want to save the file, NotePad recognizes UTF encoding, but will save the file as ANSI unless I cancel the Save, start over, and choose UTF from a little options box before saving.

Notepad sometimes detects the enconding of files with lots of digits wrongly. This is not a problem of the file, it is a bug in notepad.exe, unfortunately. This will also happen if the file is saved normally with Notepad and then opened with the exact same version of Notepad.

A workaround might be using UTF-16.

The best answer is to not use Notepad.exe - it's just not really suitable for anything of significance. I immediately reassign .txt to be opened with something else (usually Notepad++) when I'm working on a Windows machine.

[QUOTE=rogue;596513]I see that the file I posted looks like garbage in NotePad, but looks perfectly fine in NotePad++. I produced this file in the same way I produce most of the files that I generate on my Mac that I have posted here that you haven't had any issues with. The difference this time is that I did not compress the .txt file into .7z format so I suspect that the tool you are using to decompress the .7z files is converting the linefeeds.

I strongly suggest you switch to NotePad++. It is completely free (unlike TextPad which gives regular reminders to pay for it) and you won't regret it. It handles large files much better than NotePad and you can have multiple files open concurrently in the same window. It also supports syntax highlighting so if you are looking at source code for many supported languages, it helps a great deal. And of course it handles the various EOL characters.[/QUOTE]
As stated I was able to read the file with WordPad. I have NotePad++ when I've had to access large files (> 1 GB). I can use it but files in this format require me to take an extra step to pull up the specific software used instead of just double clicking on the file and having it open up.

I feel strongly that people should post files that everyone should be able to read without having to download or open special software or change default settings. I've rarely if ever encountered this problem before either in my Email or on the forum here.

That is why I check "always open with" when I choose NotePad++ to open a file to make that association. I think there is a setting in NotePad++ to "always use instead of NotePad" so that you don't even need to do that.

In the end it is your choice.
