Oh, and it's fast, does a good job of comparing files, and is shareware. And it will handle your 250MB file with ease.

The textpad web site says, "It can handle file sizes up to the largest contiguous chunk of 32-bit virtual memory." So, just what does that mean? 632 Mb too much? I am considering trying it. (USD 27.00 to purchase, but there is a trial period.)
