Uses too much memory

Postby tomas.freesun » Thu Jul 24, 2014 7:31 am

Hello ppl,

first to say I love this project as I am "native"java coder.
Second, sadly I have problems trying to use RSyntaxTextArea. The highlighting can get very, very slow with large files + highlighting words which are abundant.

I tried this operation in other text editors (Sublime3, PsPad) and couldn't reproduce similar results.
To be through, I do understand difference between native code/interpreted code. But having 400megs to highlight some word in a 1MB file seems quite a lot.

Also after going to no highlight, the memory consumption stays.

Some hints on what I may have been doing wrong?

Can you email me a link to an example file which is causing you trouble, along with what features of RSTA you have enabled (code folding, mark all, etc.)? My email is in the other thread you opened.
