#6 Seg Fault Loading Files from Command Line

Mike McKee

When I do this from command line:

geany /home/webs/mywebsite/*

...there are more than 25 pages (plus subdirectories)
and it spits out "Segmentation Fault" at command line
and quits. I used -d and found that it bombed after the
25th page.

However, if I load the GUI first and then choose Open
and shift-click a bunch of files, it loads as many as
it can and then says, "Cannot open more than 25 tabs"
(or something like that).

Again, this is one more reason why I think the app
needs to be remodeled such that the left pane shows a
folder of documents and you have to click on a doc in
order for the tab to open.

But don't be discouraged -- you're doing great work. If
I actually knew a thing or two about C++ and weren't so
discouraged by my ignorance of the language, I'd jump
in an help you get this done. (My skills are in PyGTK
and PHP.)

I'm rooting for you!

    I will fix the described error while loading files from the
    command line. And probably I will emove the limit of 25
    opened files.
    But I don't want a folder pane in the left sidebar. Sorry.

    Btw: You don't need to learn C++, Geany is completely
    written in C ;-).
