Description (last modified by andrew_b) (diff)

Test case:

$ dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=128M count=1

  1. Try to open this file when the viewer warp mode is set to "Wrap", it will take too much time (21 seconds here, which is unacceptable).
  1. Try to jump to the end of such a file when the viewer wrap mode is set to "No Wrap", it will take too much time (I have killed MC after 75 seconds).

So, actually we have too problems/bugs here.

Replying to angel_il:

No, I'm on Fedora 13, 'file' is really new here:

$ time file test
test: data

real    0m0.063s
user    0m0.007s
sys     0m0.003s

So, it seems like the first part of this bug has nothing to do with the 'file' utility. Have you actually tried to reproduce it?

Unfortunately, it's a bug of MC not 'file'.

birdie: s/warp/wrap ? :)
