    I was trying out the new GScraper and it generated a 1 GB file+ which my VPS isn't able to open(Its just 1GB ram). It keeps on hanging and the software also isn't able to handle that load. Any solution to this?

    Upload it to google docs, download it on your computer?

    unless there is software that can create virtual memory, then i would say impossible, configuring that would be tough too.

    Even on my 8 GB Desktop, notepad will always take ages to open very large text files. I've noticed that wordpad works better with the larger files (but will still eventually freeze up.)

    Text editors with 2GB limit: Notepad++, Jujuedit, TextPad
    Recommended for large files: gVim

    Doesn't hurt to try some of these out - a few load the file into memory first (and a lot of software uses virtual memory these days); it's worth a shot.

    Best,

    To avoid this happening in future you can go to the options tab and select 'create new text if lines >' and then set the amount to something that your vps can handle. I have mine set at 500,000. The program then saves a maximum of 500,000 results per text file which makes them much more manageable and will eliminate the memory problems you get when you try to open files containing millions of results.

    Removing duplicates from 2.3 gig file in gscraper take about 7-8 gig of ram on my dedi. Notepad++ cant open 500 mb file on my dedi so it wont help. Split that file using gscraper and make smaller files so you can open them. P.S. you didnt bought ovh dedi :D?
