Problem Description: In the process of programming, I copied some code from one open cfm file to another open cfm file. I hadn't noticed that the file I was pasting into was 100% cfscript and the code I pasted had cfscript tags in it. At that point I'm guessing the Syntax Checking got stuck in a loop because my processor usage hit 100% (and it's an 8 core processor) Steps to Reproduce: - Ensure "Enable Syntax Checking" is enabled in ColdFusion > Profiles > Editor > Syntax Checking - Open the attached file Alternatively you could simply paste the code in the attached file into a new CF Editor window and the same race condition occurs Actual Result: Processor shoots up to 100% and cripples the whole system. Expected Result: Duplicate tag highlighted as an error to be removed Any Workarounds: You'll need to kill the CFB process via the Task Manager. If you've managed to save the file before the condition, you'll need to open the file with another editor (like Notepad) and remove the extra cfscript tags or CFB won't open again.
