If you can find a copy of it BRIEF (for CP/M and DOS) handles multiple files up 
to the limits (at the time) of the OS & media. ncurses-style interface.

Column-select operations were among the less-common (at the time) features it 
supported. Complex stored macros and external procedure calls were among the 
several anothers. Lovely tool for formating diverse data sources for upload to 
SQL DB's for those of us who had no sed, awk, grep, rpl and friends.

CAVEAT: Last used (on OS/2 circa 1994), and I've never personally used it at all 
on files larger than 20 MB, so it may hit the wall well below what 'modern' 
systems support.
