memory issues in 10.4.10?

Dear all

I'm on a 2x2GHz G5 with 3.5 GB RAM (1.8 GB free in Process Manager)  
running BBEdit 8.7 in OS X 10.4.10.
Trying to 'process-line' (delete ...) a 163 MB will give me that:

"There is insufficient memory to complete this operation (MacOS Error  
code: -108)"

Even when mutliplying file size by 2 to account for Unicode (http:// 
faq.barebones.com/do_getanswer.php?record_id=36), I should still be  
able to edit that thing no?

Thanks for propositions...apart from cutting it apart...

Regards				Martin

[ANN] BBEdit 8.7.1 (233) beta

Hi all,

We're in the process of preparing a maintenance update for 
BBEdit 8.7. As with previous maintenance update releases in 
recent history :-), we're posting notification of the new 
versions to this list, so that anyone who's interested can take 
the new build for a spin.

Note that these are _pre-release_ versions. The intent is to fix 
bugs and address areas of improvement based on what our 
customers have reported. However, since the software is at this 
point not fully tested, there _may_ be bugs and regressions. If 
this prospect makes you nervous, then sticking with the public 
release versions is your best course of action. Nobody will be 
offended if you choose to do so; you're under no obligation to 
install and use anything but a public release. :-)

Following is a summary of the changes in the software since the 
last public release. The change notes are organized into 
additions, changes, and fixes, and are annotated where 
appropriate with case numbers. So if you recognize a number 
corresponding to a support case that was opened for you, you can 
now verify that it's been fixed correctly.

One final note: If you run into a bug in a pre-release version, 
PLEASE DO NOT REPORT THE BUG TO THE LIST. This includes asking 
about whether others have seen the same problem. Instead, please 
send a bug report to <support <at> barebones.com> and we will deal 
with it there. This will help us keep the list discussion on 
topic and productive for all list members.

Open file by name?

I've had BBEdit for a while but have just been editing individual  
files and such.  Now I want to make some changes to one of my web  
sites and would like to have all of the sources open at once so I can  
easily bounce between them.  I figured an easy way to get everything  
open would be to use "Open File by Name ..." but it doesn't do what I  
expect at all.  [Or I wouldn't be writing, would I?]

So, I click the menu item and enter "/site/main/root/*.php" into the  
dialog box (no quotes, of course) and select Match Wildcards and Find  
all matches.

Things churn for an extended time and then it finds nothing to open.   
Believe me, there ARE php files in that directory and below.

What am I doing wrong?

Sorry for the inconvenience; Open File by Name doesn't do 
wildcard expansion on absolute paths like that. However, if you 
"bbedit /path/to/site/main/root/*.php" from the command line or 
a Shell Worksheet, that should do the job.

Enjoy,

R.

Oh, OK.  I found File Groups which looks like it will do what I want  
once I set it up.

But how, then, do wildcards in Open by name actually work?  The doc  
seems to say that what I entered was how it was supposed to work.

> Enjoy,

Thanks, I do enjoy BBedit even if I haven't exactly pushed it yet.

If you enter a name with no path separators, BBEdit will search 
for it using an assortment of rules; at that point a wildcard 
match can be used (and should work, depending on what paths are 
configured in the File Search preferences).

Backup options not honored

After getting my file groups set up I started setting the backup  
options for each file.  I set them to "Backup before save" and set  
the "Other" directory to one that I set up in my Documents folder.   
The box below "Other" shows ~/Documents/Main-backup

But when I do a save the backup is sent to the original document's  
folder and not to the requested one.

If I choose "Preferred backup folder" then it does backup into ~/ 
Documents/BBedit-backup which is what the preferred is set to.

Maybe I should figure out how to set up CVS ...

Its listed as being fixed in the latest beta.

I had the same problem a week or three ago and wrote to tech support  
who confirmed the problem. Meanwhile I printed to Preview and from  
there selected the page I wanted to print. Hint: go to the file menu  
to print because the Print button on the bottom right corner bypasses  
the print dialog.

This is a bug which will be fixed in the next update. (The public  
beta of 8.7.1 previously announced on the list contains the fix for  
this problem.)
