If you try reading in a very large file to an array
variable, and then move your cursor over that array or
place it in your variable tab for debugging, the IDE
basically stops responding to user input for several
seconds. In my case, I tried reading in a file that
filled an array variable with 11234 elements. In some
cases the IDE seems to hang perpetually, forcing me to
kill the process to recover.
My computer is a run of the mill P3 450 with 256 MB
RAM and plenty of space on a 6.4 GB 7200 RPM drive.
The OS is Win2K Pro.
