Re: search has huge lag in 2.0

sometimes when I hit * or n, the UI freezes for a couple of seconds. anyone else see that ?


Re: search has huge lag in 2.0

amol, it's most probably due to hlsearch support, which scans the whole file for matches in order to highlight them. If you disable it from Tools|Options|ViEmu, it'll probably go away. I also guess it's happening with large files, as it's not very noticeable with smaller ones.

A better scanning strategy, with incremental scanning as you page up or down through the file, should be the *real* solution to this, though. It's a possibility in a future version.

Please let me know whether it's something else (of course, complex regular expressions can cause this too).
