Depending on your edits, you might have better luck using sed
which will process it as a stream instead of trying to hold the
whole thing in memory. You might also want to read at
for limitations you might bump into with files that large.
Additionally, with a file that large, it might be useful (if
you're on *nix or have common *nix-utilities on Win32) to use the
split/csplit commands to chop up your file into manageable bits
to edit subsets of them, and then piece them all back together
Hope this helps,
