I often find it useful to use an editing tool –*such as UltraEdit in the Windows environment (others ...?) to allow me to scroll through an arbitrarily-large file in various display modes. Even command-line tools such as less often have useful abilities to do this.
You need more than just the ability to "dump" it. You need to be able to browse it and search it. Even if it's gigabytes-large, and without trying to suck those gigabytes "into memory" first. You need a tool that understands both Unicode and other possible multi-byte character representations. There are plenty of them out there.
