    How to open CJ datafeed?
    I finally got my first CJ datafeed. It is a .txt GZ file of size 7237KB. What software should I use to open it?

    I've read some other threads about open monster CJ files ending up crashing somebody's computer. I'm a little afraid. Guess it is better to ask for some advices first.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've searched some information online. It looks like in order to unpack a .gz file I need the gunzip program. Can I use winzip or other window zip programs to do the unzip?

    I also tried to open it with Wordpad and excel just to see what will happen. It brought up a whole chuck of mess up codes

    7-Zip is free and works great. That's my favorite.

    I use 7-zip too, but this thread is 3 years old and I don't think she's still waiting. It got bumped by a question that should have been in it's own thread - going there now.
