Re: recover file after crash

Hello again,

In my experience, large files with few line ends (like minified _javascript_ files) tend to lag more. Sometimes I just use vim for these kind of files or, depending on what I want to do, grep or sed in order to avoid opening it in Emacs. But that should be a rare case rather than the rule.

I like to think of Emacs as a code editor (mostly) which works great for development, but not necessarily for debugging.

Byte compiling your major modes may speed up processing, but I don't think of it as a general performance solution. This "tip" should apply only for custom installs because the default/built-in ones are already compiled.

In case you can share the file that you have trouble with I will gladly try it on my system.

Do you guys experience lag when you open these large files? For me, the
deeper I get into a nested heading, the less lag there is, eventually
lag-free. But when I am at the overview, it starts to get pretty slow
around 10 MB.
