Quick Console == False Advertising
Sun, May 15 2005 12:43
Mitch runs some tests on Quick Console. Obviously the "Quick" is misleading. With honesty in marketing (as if) and product naming, it probably should be called "Slow Console".. somehow I don't think marketing would like that Maybe it should jsut be called "IDE Console Window" ... Hmm ... well something other than "Quick"
BTW: I was surprised when Micth found it to only be 3x as slow as an ordinary console window. I remember trying it on an earlier beta and it just sucked. Is 3x different that apparent ? I don't know but when I last looked at it I would have say ball park figure of 10X slower. Then again these things can be funny on VPC sometimes.
As to it's purpose, well I think it's designed to be much like the output window and hence you could refer to the output after you have finished your run.
