My first post to this list because this seems to be the best way to get some
I've had some issues with TM's regexp in the past (it was slow) but today
I've experienced just how slow it is. My TM has been "locked up" for over
hours now and all because I ran a simple regexp on a small file (file is
composed of one line, JSON formatted data, which is approximately 10000
characters long). My CPU is at 100% and all my fans are on at high power.
The replacement regexp is something like '\n$1,$2,$3\n'. That's it. From my
short experience with TM, it seems to have some serious issues with regexp
and especially regexp that adds new lines to a document. TM just can't
handle it well.
I have some questions...
1) Since I have some unsaved files and can't terminate TM because TM doesn't
automatically save unsaved 'buffers', is there a way to quit this thing and
retrieve my unsaved changes?
2) Why is TM so painfully slow when running regexp and especially regexp
that creates new lines? Is there a bundle that uses some other regexp engine
that doesn't suck so much?
3) Why doesn't TM use multithreading so that running one thread doesn't lock
up the whole app? How about a progress indicator or a cancel button??
4) Why doesn't TM save unsaved buffers automatically like almost every text
app out there (even TextEdit does it)?
Thanks for any help... I find TM interesting but extremely lacking at very
basic editor things. It's starting to frustrate me.
