Re: [gedit-list] Reading document content, iteratively, from plugins

Why not just read and write the whole document as a single block?  gedit is pretty much unusable with documents larger than a couple of megabytes (, so your document will almost certainly be smaller than that.  And I'm sure that your machine has at least a couple of gigabytes of RAM, so copying a chunk of even a few megabytes of memory should be no big deal.

It looks like I can get iterators for each successive line of a document, but is it efficient to read individual lines this way, or is there a better way? I need to write a document out to a file in the background (to something other than the current location), but I'd prefer not to read the whole document as a single block, nor write it as a single block.

I realize that I can also get a character-count for each line, but I'm not sure if this is an improvement. I'd also rather not be responsible for determine the correct newline-style.
