Replace verrrry slow

Replace verrrry slow

Postby spadgos on Tue Nov 29, 2011 10:47 am

I have a file which contains compressed CSS -- you know, all comments and extraneous whitespace stripped, etc. Anyway, it's all on one line and about 41000 characters long.

When I want to compare it to another file, I need to split it onto new lines so I run this:

Code: Select all
Replace: "}"
With: "}

That is, in the "replace with" dialog I type "}" and then press numpad enter.

There's only 485 matching braces, but when I execute the replace, it hangs the program for about 30 seconds before completing.

64-bit Linux version 2144, running on Ubuntu.

I also have issues with large SQL files (over 1 MB).
If I'm disabling syntax highlight (and use plain text) is lighting fast.
