#2371 JEdit stops responding on load of file with a large line


Attached is a file that successfully replicates this
bug on my machine. The noteable characteristic of this
file is a ridiculously long line. It will load up fine
in notepad, however, and can be rendered in a browser
even. Not so with JEdit, which stops responding, but
still uses up CPU time. I'm sure this isn't a plugin
issue, I've tried opening it without the html
extension, and also disabling my plugins. I'm running
Win2K, if you have any problems replicating this.

    While I was submitting this bug, the JEdit started
    responding again(after a long time). However, with a file
    in excess of 100kb, I've had JEdit run for over 10 mins
    without finishing the load. So, you can experiment with
    different lengths, but this is still a bug.

    Your attachment took about two seconds to load on my
    machine, a Pentium M 1.6 GHz.

    I think this might be related to what the TaskList plugin
    (0.4.4) is doing, when it gets (de-)activated in the
    plugin manager, because I get the same delay (about
    10 seconds) then like with starting jEdit or (in particular)
    resizing the textarea.

    jEdit CVS, Sun Java 1.5.0_04 (Linux86), amd64.

    I was able to open this in less than a second and it was also being parsed by XML sidekick.
    I think your heap size was too small.
    Increase it to something with a couple of hundred megabytes in it, to help it fit the thing in memory.
    Especially if it needs to be parsed by a plugin, that needs even more memory.

    export JAVA_HEAP_SIZE=450
    exec java "-Dawt.useSystemAAFontSettings=on" "-Dswing.aatext=true" "-Djedit.home=$JEDIT_HOME" -mx${JAVA_HEAP_SIZE}m ${JEDIT} -jar "$JEDIT_HOME/jedit.jar" -reuseview "$@"
