As I really dont have anything better to do, here is yet another

This one is opensource, freeware and full of cool features!

This stack serves two purposes:
1 Demonstrate how to read and write files in probably every possible way
2 Preview huge files that cannot be read in the usual text editors. (BBEdit
might do it, UltraEdit requires a bit of tweaking to avoid huge delays).
This stack does it in milliseconds ;)

Other cool features are
- the full file's information,
- buffered reading forward or backwards,
- a formatter that does ASCII or HEX (and a future formatter coming later
that will allow other formating styles but which is not fully finished in
this stack release).

Download is here and is only 15KBs

Sorry, no screenshot.
