too slow to read pdfs with many pages?
I've a 267-page pdf file, pure text, 1.8M in size, which I don't consider a big size. But ipdf seems to take forever (around 12 seconds) to load a new page freshly. I wonder if anyone has experienced similar situation.
It also seems to do some caching for the next pages in the background, so speed is non-issue if I go to the next page after spending time to read current one. But unfortunately, my PDF is fully of cross-references, which allows non-linear jump.
A 500MHz CPU this slow sounds absurd. I mean, I use a PIII 500MHz 192M RAM laptop daily, which is never this bad. Also, pdf is a format designed for random access (if not perfect), so jumping pages shouldn't be that much of an issue. I wonder if anything could be done to ipdf to make this aspect faster.
