    You might be interested in ewig and immer by Juan Pedro Bolivar Puente:



    See the author instantly opening a ~1GB text file with async loading, paging through, copying/pasting, and undoing/redoing in their prototype “ewig” text editor about 27 minutes into their talk here:


    It’s backed by a “vector of vectors” data structure called a relaxed radix balanced tree:


    That original paper has seen lots of attention and attempts at performance improvements, such as:

    Project mention: The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Must Know About Unicode in 2023 | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-02

    It sounds like a generic length function in Unicode in 2023 is no longer a good idea. These articles complaining about the variety of lengths in Unicode are annoying at this point. Pretty much all of them can be summed up as, "Well, it depends." And, that isn't wrong. But nerds love to argue until they are blue in the face about the One Correct Answer. Sheesh.

    This is the most interesting comparison article I have seen in years about Unicode processing in C++: https://thephd.dev/the-c-c++-rust-string-text-encoding-api-l...

    The author is also the lead on an open source C++ Unicode library called ztd.txt: https://github.com/soasis/text
