Importing very large text file into ACL (Audit Command Language)
Posted on 2008-06-17
I have a big text file (4 gigs; 7 million lines). I'm trying to import this to ACL, but found that it gave me an error "can only defineASCII file with carriage return/line feed character".
It's delimited by pipes ("|") with around 10 fields or so. Some of the lines have errors, such as what supposed to be one row is broken up to two rows.
I've tried ConTEXT, Notepad++ and Crimson Editor and they can't handle it. LTFViewer can view the file, but it can't do anything besides viewing. I had previously encountered the same problem, but with a much smaller file (around hundred of megs); what I did was import the file into access and get ACL to import from Access. This doesn't work since this file is too big.
My goal is to somehow give the file carriage returns so that I can import it to ACL.
I'm working in Windows XP environment.
