Hey there

I wrote a function to open any file in my project using ido. The
Problem is, that the project has a lot of files and a deeply nested
directory structure. When i then complete the file name in ido using
fuzzy-matching it is extremely slow and unusable. Is there a way to
increase the speed of ido? or should i take another approach to this
problem? I am currently using the method "ido-completing-read".

regards,
Senny

A while ago I wrote a mode called ido-hacks. As the name
suggests it contains a couple of more or less dirty
modifications to ido, among them :

* faster display of prospect (streamlined one loop)
* caching of already computed flex-matches
* use ido for every completing-read call

If you're interested I could mail/post it and you could maybe
extract the optimization parts (It's one advice and one redefinition.)
Btw, I am using it all the time.

Could you please send it here? I think there are more people
interested in it!

Thanks in advance.

I attached it to this mail. Compiling is suggested. Load and enable it like this:

(ido-mode 1)
(ido-hacks-mode 1)

I have send the wrong version....

Since noone seems to be able to receive the attached file, I have put it
on the web :
