Fix of terminal window
« on: August 31, 2009, 06:58:54 am »
I find the terminal window a very useful tool for debuggning - but: after a while it tends to go slower and slower and in the end hangs the process.
Can you please fix the history so that you save , lets say 5000 lines or a fixed number of char's and just dump the older. That will probably cure the process. Sometimes I have to reboot my computer because of this.
And Yes: I'm to lazy to start a better terminal program in another window so I continue to complain about this one  ;)

Best regards and thank you for a good software.

Thanks for the suggestion - we will look into it.

Meanwhile we recommend Hyperterminal or TeraTerm Pro for heavy usage. The Flash Magic terminal window was meant for quick testing of newly downloaded firmware.
