Not-Too-Readable Text Files

Imagine my surprise: a downloaded zip file of 95 352 kb (or ko in French) contained one single text file (yes, ".txt") of 508 371 kb. Needless to say, I cannot browse it with Notepad.

I suppose I'll unzip it to a cd, and then... what? Can Wordpad or OOo read and display a file without loading it into memory? I guess I'll find out.

I can't wait to see its contents and hopefully understand why it couldn't have been split into smaller bits.
