Can CDT load previously opened files on demand on startup? [message #853368] Mon, 23 April 2012 01:00 Go to next message

This really annoys me. I usually end up with quite a few files(say 100) open after working for a while, then I close eclipse and restart. Now Eclipse hangs forever on startup because of not enough memory. I have already allocated 1.5G mem to it. My suspect is that Eclipse/CDT is trying to load all the previously opened files on startup, because this problem is not seen when I only have like 50 files opened.

This is really annoying. Is there anyway to have Eclipse/CDT only load the files that is currently focused in the editor panel and load the rest of files in the dropdown list on demand?

Btw, I have only one project open in the workspace, and "refresh workspace on startup" is already turned off.

I have lots of opened files and I never saw such problem. It should not happen (I am not sure it is related to memory allocation). Could you please follow this link: and open a bug for behavior you are observing.
