Me and my colleague are always discussing many different IDE's and text editors. I am a big sublime text fan, and he pretty much hates everything. One of the problems we had with sublime text is that it's really slow at loading very big files. Our example use-case was opening a 50MB .sql file. In my opinion this is not a valid usecase for a text editor but according to him it is.
Other editors seem to load the file withing a few seconds. For example: EditPlus and SciTE (based on scintilla). What is the reason sublime text is so slow with large files? Any information that could add to this discussion is welcome.
Thanks for your time.
