Long Lines

Top  Previous  Next

The editor can handle lines of unlimited length without any problems. A long line will appear as a single long line across the top of the screen.


Since calculating tab positions requires analyzing the whole line, displaying tab positions can be problematic on a very long line. For this reason, if a single line is longer than 1024 characters, the editor will not expand any tab past this point on the line. The current version has been tested on lines as long as two million characters with no noticeable slowing or degradation of performance.
