So, attached you will see a picture of the dialog that NB 5.5 yields
when I attempt to open our 12800 line big script file
(big_insert_script_12800.sql), which lives in sql12/test/sql dir. It
claims that the filesize is 2MB and that it might be too large for the
editor to load. However, I click the "ok" button and it loads in
about 4 seconds. With the latest SQuirreL code, the same file takes
about 24 seconds to load. Now, we do alot of work while loading that
script that I'm not positive that NB has to do. However, as you can
see, we are about 600% slower than NB (and it highlights the code as
well). It also doesn't seem to be affected by line length. NB 5.5
seems to load the file reasonable and scrolling performance is snappy.
And I can see that all of the lines are loaded, so it doesn't appear
to be a off-screen buffering strategy - there is absolutely no delay
in scrolling. I'd say we have some room for improvement that NB 5.5
could likely help with.
