Slow search performance
Hi, thank you for regexxer :)
- I open a folder with about 300 subfolders, each containing one .md file and several images.
- I set the pattern to
*.md, recursive is enabled
- I fill the search field with a plain word and hit enter.
The progress bar advances for one or two minutes, just to scan 327 files. During this time period one core in the i7 CPU is maxed out (with 16Gb Ram and a fast SSD drive). The result includes just 7 hits as expected.
ag (the silver searcher) takes milliseconds to show the same results.
I've used regexxer for years and I don't remember speed being an issue.
Any ideas why this could be happening?
