When I use the interactive console to execute python it sometimes gets very slow. For example if I print out lots of vertices. After that print out every following command is much slower performed as before. Is there a work around to that? Do I have to free any resources? How can I reset the console?
dunno, ideasman made it - i havent had had probs, what OS are you on, perhaps opengl differences?
i am running blender on XP Professional. And not only the execution speed is slowed down, even when I type after every keystroke I have to wait! Actually, I have to restart blender to be able to work properly.
aha. i think i have only used it on linux and macosx. will test when see a win32 box the next time
the slowdowns are farily basic-
- line wrapping is slow, avoid printing long lines.
- Smaller text buffer may improve speed (Theres some variable in teh python code to adjust)
- Drawing less lines is faster so make the window less tall…
Printing all the verts of a mesh is somthing that will probably always slow it down a bit.
if you give me an example, I could improve performancy for that example… eg only use the tail of lines greater then 512 chars… but then again people might want that
See how you go…
cambo, did you take a look at ipython?
there is a new release, and it is nice … and pure python.
