I have a self-extracting "archive" generated by Makeself tool, which is essentially a shell script with a large binary blob in inside. What I want is to view only text part of the file, while hiding the binary part completely (possibly abbreviating it to one line).
If there is a way to speed up the process of opening such file by preventing
vim from reading binary portion, that's even better. Currently, I have to use
less for viewing such files, because
vim just takes too long to load.
