far manager command line getting slower

Postby ult » Thu 12 Sep, 2013 14:58

My far manager command line is getting slower. When I type it, it is visually slower to see the characters to appear in the screeen. It was much faster before. Is there some sort of a cache which is getting large that is used for the command completion?

Probably you have slowly or disconnected network/remote drives in the PATH.

I checked that is not the issue. What about the command history? That is getting larger by time. How do I limit the size of command history or delete it all?

Thanks, after deleting it is much faster now. It would be good if there was a limit on the history, and automatic deletion after passing the limit

far:config
History.CommandHistory.Count (default = 1000)
History.CommandHistory.Lifetime (days, default = 90)

CompactHistory() executes on Far Exit.
