I get a bunch of gibberish when I try to open this file.

I had the same problem when I tried to open it with the old M$plain-text editor Notepad. It looked like a bunch of Chinese characters or something. It was especially weird because the M$ file preview had displayed it OK.

So I opened the file in WordPad, and it looked OK. I then saved the WordPad file window to the original file name, thereby replacing the original file. The replacement opened OK in Notepad.

I also downloaded the file to a Mac. It opened OK in TextEdit as a plain text file.

EDIT: It is not immediately obvious to me why the numbers are entered in the order that they are. What determines that?

 2021-12-29, 03:27 #955 rogue     "Mark" Apr 2003 Between here and the 3×7×311 Posts There is no "order by" in the SELECT that generated this output. Yes, this was created on a Mac, so the linefeeds are probably not what you expect. If you open in NotePad++ on Windows, it looks good.

They are ordered by k-value. If you do your searching by k-value that is how they will be saved.

Please post in standard NotePad format in the future. I have not had this problem before. Yes it appears to display a bunch of Asian-language characters in NotePad. 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.

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.
