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>.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
