Hello Rodolfo,

The cause of the very large memory amount needed for opening large 
documents is the architecture of the Java Swing components needed for 
rendering a document in the syntax highlighted _text editor_. It is an 
inherent problem of the Swing architecture which has no connection with 
the parser.
