How to show line numbers? How to show line numbers? sedawk (Programmer) (OP) 9 Jun 06 12:36 Hi, I have a quick question: is it possible to show the line numbers on the left/right hand side when I have a large file?Thanks RE: How to show line numbers? skiflyer (Programmer) 27 Aug 06 19:07 I have to think yes, but I can't say I've ever see it, nor can I seem to find a way to do it in any of my normal resources.Just for the time being though, have you set line-number-mode to true so that you can at least see the information on the mode line... though I'm guessing your large file comment means you're sick of the ?????? response in big files.
