Re: TRichView vs WPTools
Posted: 06/12/2003 16:11:30
Several years ago, I tried WPTools but then switched to TRichview.
I work with very large documents and WPTools is much slower (like 10 times
slower) to load and process large documents than TRichview. WPTools also uses
much more memory (about 4 times as much if I recall). I contacted the author
Julian Ziersch and he had said that this was because of the internal
processing in WPTools, which is on a character by character basis. As a
result, he said it was not possible to make it much faster or use less memory.
