Topic: Slow Search (ViEmu 3/VS2010)
I have had an issue with the speed of searches in ViEmu within Visual Studio 2010 for a while now. I've just downloaded ViEmu 3 and the problem is still present.
Using / to search larger files is very slow. I've tried turning off incsearch and the problem remains. This only appears to be an issue in larger files.
Interestingly, searching for some terms in the files that I notice a slowdown is instant, while other searches have a noticeable delay. After some investigation it seems the less matches that are present for a search, the longer the delay when searching, or pressing n to get to the next result.
I get that it is probably scanning the whole file each time, however the same search using Visual Studio search is instant and this is what I would expect from ViEmu. I've also opened the same files in vim and the searches are also instant (probably even faster than Visual Studio).
This has got to the stage that I am avoiding the vim style searches in favour of Visual Studio because the searching is just way too slow.
Are there plans to speed this up, or is there any settings I can change to make this faster? I know a faster search is possible as Visual Studio can perform the same searches instantly, but obviously I want the full capabilities of the vim search including regex.
