@RobertHarvey I guess that either this is "directly related to SDLC" or close voters are really anemic lately. Not surprising that this is in HNQ and tells the world loud and clear, "this site is about roses"

This isn't the kind of question we want here. High votes, bikeshedding, has nothing to do with software development. Probably belongs on The Workplace, if anywhere.

@RobertHarvey it is possible that asker wanted to poll about what is the best way / tool to take notes and simply twisted their question to avoid immediate close. If this is the case, you see, the trick worked

This q. is better suited for programmers.stackexchange.com. I would read the file in large blocks (4MB+) from the beginning and the end, reverse them in memory and write back. — RustyX 32 secs ago
