Dear listmembers,
I just recently compiled octave 5.1.0 on my computer and started working with
it. Initially I thought that the editor would be broken because if I tried to
open a file the cursor rotated apparently "forever".
By accident I left it rotating for a while, then everything started to work as
That said, restarting octave and then trying to open a file takes about 2
minutes(!!!) to complete. After that I can use the editor as normal - until I
restart octave. Anyone having any idea why I have to wait 2 minutes to come to
an usable interface? I assumed that octave is searching through the entire
directory - but I cannot tell that for sure.
Any hint to probably circumvent this would be very much appreciated - as this
behavior is really annoying.
Thank you
take care
