in reply to Scheduling script with pauses

Under Windows, I often use the ProcessManager to pause a process; and then later resume it. Provided the machine isn't shutdown or re-started, this works well. Even if it is using a substantial amount of memory, once paused, any other processes that need memory simple cause its memory to get swapped out; and it get swapped back in once resumed.

Try: kill -STOP <yourpid> and then later: kill -CONT <yourpid>.

[LanX]: not my code ...
[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
[choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
[LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
[LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
[Corion]: LanX: The "good" approach here would be to use the appropriate DBI parameters to make the driver decode strings properly. But that will have a ripple-on effect of messing up all the places where manual decoding happens ;)
[LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
[LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
[LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
