in reply to Eclipse 3 + EPIC 0.3.9

Whats the speed of Eclipse 3 like (and the specs of your machine)? I attempted to use one of them in the past, and found it much too slow. (But then I'm at a PII/300 .. still, now it has lots more RAM at least.. ).

Please include your config file in your post, instead of pointing to your scatchpad. You will quite likely remove it from there in the future, then anyone finding this post will not see it. (Use readmore tags if its long)

    I have a P4/2.4GHz - 1GB RAM machine and I find performance is good when I have "validate source when idle for..." set to the maximum setting. That way it'll only validate (perl -c) when I hit CTRL-s to save.

    My laptop is a P4/1.8GHz - 512MB RAM, and again performance is good as long as the validation is set long.

    I use Eclipse on my G4 mac at home (768MB RAM) and it's a slow dog. Painful.

    On my P3 1GHz/512MB RAM (work) system, performance overall is fine. I notice that response time degrades overnight (i.e. in the morning I need to restart Eclipse.) The whole interface blocks when loading a file into the editor view and for source format--for large files this is an annoyance. The editors handle files up to 1000 lines, after that there is a big performance hit for me. I mostly edit lots of small files, so I don't consider any of these a problem.


    You said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake; well, this could be it, sweetheart.
      Hmm, I like leaving my editors/projects open for days/weeks at a time.. and some of the files are some larger than 1000 lines..

      I guess I'll continue to give it a miss, and stick with emacs for now..
