Default (x)emacs verilog-mode / slow indenting

Hi all.

I've been using Mac's verilog-mode for years to edit my code. However,
as my files have gotten bigger, the mode has made emacs slow down to
the point of uselessness. When I'm editing a 5000 - 10000 line file,
just hitting return near the end of the file takes a while for it to
figure out the correct indentation. And, trying to re-indent the
whole file takes forever.

I'm running the latest verilog-mode.el and xemacs 21.4.15 under RedHat
Enterprise.

Any ideas how to speed this up? Any Win/*nix programs to batch indent
Verilog files outside the editor?

Thanks!

David

I realize we all have our preferences for style, etc. But have you
considered reducing your file size? I usually find that when a module
grows much over 1,000 lines it helps to modularize it more.

Just my 2 cents,
Gabor

Make sure you have line number mode turned off.

Emacs in batch mode.

I generally agree, but A) I didn't write most of the code, and B) some
are top-level files that instantiate lots of sub-modules so they're
huge. Now, if all the tools supported SV interfaces I could shrink
them down under 1k lines.
