Subject: Caching CLIM generated menus?
The hash table would get enormous, and the amount of data each entry
hangs on to is not exactly small. I will try to come up with
something an application can use on a case by case basis (where one
"case" is a presentation-type X input context), but that's the best I
can do. In general, CLIM just can't do this automatically, it's just
I think an application based approach would be good. Also, a finite cache
might be good too, say only keeping the last few (10?) menus.
I just started prototyping this. I was, unfortunately, more correct
about my "CLIM can't just do this..." claim than I would like.
There's still good stuff we can do, but it will have limitations.
