[REBOL] Re: Help: progress bar to slow

From: reboler:programmer at: 21-Nov-2002 14:20

Re: Help: progress bar to slow I don't absolutely need the 'wait. I included it for the same reason Graham does: so that future modifications of the code would allow me to stop the encryption process mid stream, since it can sometimes take a very long time with large files. I did remove it from my script but it didn't improve the time by much. I believe the time is being added with the 'show, because when I reduce the number of times show is called, the script speeds up. It still is about 2 times longer with the progress bar active than without it. I will try Volkers suggestion today. It seems like a good way to restrict the number of 'show calls no matter what the size of the file is.
