chessgui has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I would like to know if there is a foolproof way in perl to set the thread quantum of a process under Windows.
The process is opened as a bidirectional pipe and I have the pid.
This is necessary for me because I want a chess engine to make calculations on a position in the background while I'm able to do other things on the computer. Currently it eats up CPU time so much that everything else becomes painstakingly slow, web pages time out etc.
