Jim AlbrightSubject: Stopping long(time) XPath evaluations
Author: Jim Albright
Date: 31 Dec 2002 01:26 PM
I always like to be able to hit ESC in order to stop a long process from continuing .... either to break an endless loop or just to stop and see what has happened so far.

An example: I just did an XPath Query for
//text//list//text which should have been
//text//list//text{} which I spotted after I pressed Enter. So I had to wait for it to process the whole Query before I could use computer .... it is so resource intensive you can hardly do anything else while you wait.

Currently an XPath query can be stopped only after a result has been
retrieved; in this case, the query will not return anything, so it isn't
stoppable.

We'll see if we can reduce the granularity....

Thanks,
Alberto
