    hello,

    searching a small text file (44K) on winxp, 512MB, P3 1GHz machine makes n++ hang. The file is off from www.toronto.com , the front page.

    I have tested the same function on other bigger files and it works fine.

    any explanation for this ?

      Which n++ version do you use?
      It hangs when you search what?
      More description will help to answer your question.

      sorry for the lack of information.
      use n++ v2.8.  i have tried the terms 'www' and 'html' , both hang..

        Use v2.9 which fixes some search/replace bugs.
        Please let me know if the bug is reproduced.

      thanks for the reply.

      i tried the v2.9 just now. unfortunately, it's no better than the previous version on this matter, the counting is giving the same problem. and there is a new problem too : drag file to n++ and it hangs too.

      however, i noticed that it's the same file(the index html file of toronto.com) causing the problem. the file contains one line and it's a loooong line.

      the memory usage skyrockets when i either drag the file to n++ or do counting on the file, then it hangs. this file is about 110K.  the problems are gone (still bit lagging) when i reduce the file size to 10K.

      James.
