Tomasz Grysztar (author of flat assembler) wrote a text editor using a one-way list. Each line of text consists of blocks of "segments" of fixed length. The first block points to the next one and the next block to the next one. As a result, a continuous memory area is not needed.
In the long mode it is possible to obtain a continuous memory area of up to 64GiB thanks to mapping.
It is possible to download this text editor from (search for the file FASMD3X.EXE in archive FASM.7Z):
