Analysis Disk Cache


Home » Support » Index of All Documentation » Wing IDE Reference Manual » Source Code Analysis »

The source code analyzer writes information about files it has recently examined into the Cache Directory that is listed in Wing's About box, which is accessed from the Help menu.

Cache size may be controlled with the Max Cache Size preference However, Wing does not perform well if the space available for the cache is smaller than the space needed for a single project's source analysis information. If you see excessive sluggishness, either increase the size of the cache or disable it entirely by setting its size to 0.

If the same cache will be used by more than one computer, make sure the clocks of the two computers are synchronized. The caching mechanism uses time stamps, and may become confused if this is not done.

The analysis cache may be removed in its entirety. Wing IDE will reanalyze your code and recreate the cache as necessary.
