    i just upgraded from 0.3.8 to 0.3.10

    With 0.3.8 EPIC was not really fast but usable.
    With 0.3.10 sadly EPIC is unusable slow. When editing in the source code after pressing a key it takes  about 2 seconds until the pressed letter is displayed. During this 2 seconds the processor is heavily loaded.
    If I type a longer text, there is a pause of these 2 seconds between each letter displayed.
    It is nearly impossible to program this way.

    Does EPIC makes a check of the full source code after pressing a key? The perl file I am working on is over 2500 lines (ugly, historic reasons;), so this might be a reason? I just tested it with smaller Perl files and EPIC feels fast with them.

    I am using Version: Eclipse 3.0.1 (Build id: 200409161125) with Epic 0.3.10 on a Suse9.1 Linux System. Athlon XP+ 2600 with 1Gig of RAM.

    Thanks ahead if you can improve this.

      One of the new issues in the Editor is the colouring issue - which might could cause the problem. But without testing there is no way to say - yes/no. => send me the perl-file, what and where you are trying to change and I'll try it on my machine.

        Forgotten to mention, send as zip-file.

        I guess it has something to do with coloring. Is coloring done the proper way? In which fields (e.g. Quote, POD, ...) are you expierincing problems? I guess even it slows down, at other place it gains the regular speed again.

      Am seeing the same problem with large script files especially.   Doesn't seem to matter where or on what in the file I'm working.   Had to revert to 0.3.08.    Am running Eclipse  3.0.1 Build 200409161125 on W2K SP4, 744Mhz PIII Toshiba Satellite 4600.

      Hi,

      we are working on the performance problem.
      Switching off source folding might help a little.

      Bye

      Hello...is there a patch or any workaround available that resolves this problem (other than reverting to 0.3.8 or disabling folding)?

      Thanks!
