Hello,
It is known that eclipse default text editor lack of support to read huge files.
It reads the entire file into a string buffer and then creates a document out of it.

My question is if there is a text editor in Eclipse that support paging of file? meaning -
a user opens a huge file, but only the part that he currently sees is loaded into the memory, and he doesn't feel that only part of the file is loaded.

If not, I would like some tips for where to get started in writing such editor my self. I have good knowledge of PDE and wrote a few plugins, but this problem seems to be more complicated.
Moreover, the files I want to be able to open are not in the local workspace, but outside of it, so I am using IFileStore as a resource, FileStoreEditorInput as an IEditorInput and TextFileDocumentProvider as provider

Thanks a lot !
