Psst, wanna hang vscode?
1. Open a moderate-sized file
2. Find; reg-exp mode on
You’re welcome ;)
@aral Well that wasn't that hard hahaha
@aral I *hate* live-update of regexp, for just that reason; even if it doesn't hang, it slows down typing the rest of the regexp.
BBEdit doesn't hang, but even that slows a bit on big files like logs.
If you want to write your regex without auto-update you can always use the search field (Lupe icon) instead of CMD+F / CTRL+F with the "search.searchOnType" option set to false.
I'd say in 99% of the cases the auto-updated search works just fine.
