Replace all and Slickedit freezes
« on: September 26, 2011, 01:37:05 pm »
Dear all,
I hope you can help me on this one.

I am trying to replace all <?invoce=xxxx> with nothing.
There is approx about 16000 occurences in each XML file. Although when I press replace all it freezes and dont return back.
Have been using the old version VisualSlick in XP, but after switching to XP I have been trying the trial version. Although never had this problem with the Vslick.
Any solutions for this?

The file is 460mb
about 18000 XML files

Any help is highly appericable.

What is the CPU by the vs.exe process?
How long did you wait for it to complete?

Your numbers multiply out to 288 million replacements, in 18 thousand files.  That could take a while.

Could it be still working and just taking a while?
