I have been thinking about the priority part of my enhancement request. This is a little bit tricky. The different priority levels available in the WIN32 CreateProcess are described at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... 85%29.aspx
. These are *extremely* OS-specific. There is no direct correspondence between these and POSIX nice levels.
Perhaps what is needed is some new Foundation class (ProcessPriority???) which is the lowest common denominator. It would provide levels that allow the WIN32 priorities to be mapped to and provide the next best thing using POSIX nice levels. Thoughts, anyone?
