If you really have a pathological text file, notepad++ and vi are great, but sometimes you have to break out the ultimate weapon, "awk", a Unix text processing language, the grandaddy of "perl" and all that followed. Succinct, lean, intuitive, and fun. You won't feel all dirty when you get done using it. Kind of like fly fishing for your brain.
