bfs [option ] file

Big file scanner. Read a large file , using ed -like syntax. This command is more efficient than ed for scanning very large files because the file is not read into a buffer. Files can be up to 1024K bytes. bfs can be used to view a large file and identify sections to be divided with csplit . Not too useful.



Do not print the file size.
