Help with large volumes of text

Hey guys,

Just wanted some advise on how best to format a large volume of text.
I have a text file with a list just like:

123456 rtyu.tghj.ghj
098765 edfgh.xcvb
34567 asdf.fgh

its a big list, 171MB of just solid list.

I want to make a poster out of it and im wondering the best way to go about it.
As I said its in a vertical list format but I will need it to go across as well and fill up around A2 page size.

Any ideas on the best way to do this? obviously a crazy small font size, still just about legible though.

You could do a bunch of columns across the page, or you could use "Find and Replace" to replace the hard returns with just a space.

Oh, since you didn't mention the program you'd be using, something like InDesign would work best.
