I use visual C 5.
In my project more then 50 files.
One of my file is about 4000 lines.
While I edit this file, the editor reponses are very slow.
For example: when I press the <ENTER> button , it takes about 3 seconds for the editor to react, on smaller files in the same project I dont have this problem.
Does any one no about this ?

VC is multithreaded, so it slows down when it is doing other things, like compiling.  Does that apply?

VC will also slow down if it must do a lot of memory paging.  Try to keep the number of open files and programs to a minimum.  Make sure you have sufficient RAM and virtual memory.  (I would say 128 M of RAM for VC 5, not the 64 MS recomends.)

However, I would strongly recommend you consider a better editor.  VC's editor is very poor.  I use The Semware Editor and like it alot, there is also the Code Write Editor.

hi zona,

there are some possibilities to "speed up" (or "unslow up") your MSDEV.

1. clearing all breakpoints (<alt>-<F9> then "remove all"-Button)
2. close unneccessary windows
3. remove the wizard-toolbar
4. clear the ".opt" file (carefull, you lose all your windows and debug-settings) settings

Someties I hav the same problem. most times steps 1. till 3. are sufficient.

bye,
  feri

The problem is that you have too many break points.  Remove all the break points in the file, and hitting Enter will be a lot faster.
