MyopiMacs

MyopiMacs – View small portions of extremely large files using little memory or bandwidth.

Is this planned or already written but not here? --TedZ

@TedZ: this is part of PatrickAnderson’s Emacs wishlist. ViewLargeFiles by Mathias Dahl might provide some of the same functionality (I haven’t experimented with it yet); see vlf.el.
