I have a big perl file ( ~7000 lines ) and epic works very slow when I try to edit it. Especially when the autocomplete popup is going to show up.
I also (unfortunately) have one 7000+ lines file which I can edit with acceptable (but not great) performance on a 2.8 GHz PC. You should have seen how slow the previous versions were ;)
You can disable autocomplete in Preferences/Content Assist. Maybe this will improve things a bit.
:) thanks, I'm not sure I want to disable it but I may have to. I had a good result when I increased the verify time to 5 sec instead of the .4 or something like that. I'm working on 1.67 Ghz PowerPC G4 mac.
I'm actually using it for a couple of years now and I really like it - the best I have tried.
