FilePeek is the file viewer that Windows should have given you, but didn't. FilePeek will view the text in any file, no matter what kind of file it is, and very quickly. FilePeek converts non-displayable characters to a dot ( . ) and therefore, doesn't allow binary characters to truncate its view. It is a "view only" program, so you don't have to worry about accidentally modifying files you're viewing with it. FilePeek also has a hex view mode.
