.fdb Viewer

I'm trying to open and view a .fdb file in plain text so I can search for a string.  It says the file is too big to open with notepad, so I tried textpad,metapad,notetab, none of those worked either.  How else could I open this file?

File is too big for any of the above, I have tried them all now.  The file size is 5.8 gigs
all versions of unix have a a tool called "grep" which will do the job on the command line

grep "string" filename

however if the string has been encoded by firebird, the only way to do it is to use firebird and sql queries
