Editing large files, even ones that are larger than 50GB, is a possibility with the PilotEdit application for Windows. This is a powerful tool that can be described as a text, HTML, PHP, JAVA, and HEX editor. It comes with a very nice set of features that will meet all your editing needs.

There are two PilotEdit versions to choose from: PilotEdit, the free to try, paid version, and PilotEdit Lite, the free version that comes with a limited set of features. You can install either of these two editions on a 32 or 64-bit Windows edition. To do so you must download an archive, extract the executable inside, run it, then follow the onscreen instructions presented by a setup wizard.

By default, PilotEdit uses the Office 2003 theme. From the Configure menu, the Themes submenu, you can switch to the Office 2007, Visual Studio, or Windows Classic theme. You can further customize the way the application looks by choosing what toolbars and commands you want to see on the interface. If you have any problems with the interface, check out the GUI section in the application’s Help file.

As mentioned above, there are two PilotEdit editions to choose from. The Lite one is free, can edit files larger than 10GB, comes with customizable syntax and keyword highlighting, advanced search and replace, HEX mode, and more. The paid version can edit files larger than 50GB, can compare and merge two files larger than 500MB, can encrypt and decrypt files larger than 10GB, can extract strings matching a regular expression, automatically detects start tag and end tag, can execute scripts, and more. You can use the paid version for free for a trial period of 30 days.

If you’re looking for a powerful text editor, HTML, PHP, JAVA, and HEX editor, look no more. PilotEdit is the application you’ve been searching for.


PilotEdit works with 32 and 64-bit Windows editions. There’s a detailed Help file to help you out. The application is a powerful and advanced text editor, HTML editor, PHP editor, JAVA editor and HEX editor. There’s a free and a paid version to choose from.


The free version offers less features, the paid version can be used for free for a 30-day trial.
