PSPad is an excellent text editor for general users and source code editor for programmers and web designers, but it lacks the support for large text files, this is same as ultraedit and notepad++. Feel free to check out HxD or LTFViewr, the former one is a stunning large file viewer and editor, the later one is an amazing large text file viewer.

PSPad works on most Windows operating systems including Windows 7 and Windows XP.

Download it from CNET or the developer’s website.
