IDE - Sizelimit of Sourcecode

Archives Forums/Blitz3D Bug Reports/IDE - Sizelimit of Sourcecode

Fredor(Posted 2011) [#1]

i know it's probably a bad programming style
but unfortunately my source code has now a file size of
1049721 bytes in a file. I program since 2004, an extended tools collection.

When I load the source-code-file in the IDE Bltz3d I canīt edit the source code anymore.
Is this a bug or a limit with which I have to live?

Or is there a way to circumvent this limit?

My operating system is Windows 7.

Kind regards
Marc Herda

Have you tried using include files?

I think there is a point at which the IDE breaks, but it's somewhere around 20mb. I wrote a nonsense-code generator once for a joke, and I think it got to 20mb before killing the IDE. Maybe it depends on your PC.

Do what Matt says - split up your code into several files, and use Include.

Thanks for the fast answers.

I have thought on that, too.
And I think I'll probably do now that way.
This sould be work.

But i had hope I can do something to screw on the IDE.

Another solution is an alternae IDE.
But they are for my opinion not so clear or overloaded.
