>>In some cases where punch files are huge, it is impossible to copy VEC section of the punch file to a input file. As I have examined PFE.exe editor works more efficiently than the windows original editors (notepad and wordpad) and it can easily open such files (about 500 MB) but it can't copy the huge VEC section to a input file. Is it possible to read VEC section of a punch file by Firefly without copying the VEC section to a input file ? I appreciate your help in advance.
