But GTK is a horribly slow toolkit so I guess the Linux version would use much longer time.
I don't think that we can blame it on GTK. The Wing IDE use GTK as well
Btw, it does not slow down here with every line of debug output.
Maybe it is a Linux problem.
Oh, I didn't mention that I was also using GTK on Linux.
But you were right, changing from 10'000 to 100'000
shows the slowdown here too.
I often use the Debug command to print some values to the output window. In my special case i received a bunch of lines from a newsserver. There was no need to read every line because it contained encoded data, but i just wanted to see the receiving result of an NNTP command.
Well I understand. Sometimes I also just want to see
what is currently
going on. In that case it would
be useful if the debug-window had a buffer limit and
would just show the last 100 lines or so. Then again
I was often cursing Eclipse because it didn't keep enough
lines in the output window
And as others were
suggesting, with an open terminal window you actually
get exactly this behaviour.
