Tasks and Priorities

Post by Thomas A. Bon » Wed, 22 Nov 1995 04:00:00



Hello,

   Is it possible to schedule the priority of a task(i.e. 1-10 1 lowest, 10 highest)
?   If so how is this done.

1. How to set priority of a running task

Does anyone know how to reset a task's priority while it is running?
I know that I can set a task's priority when I execute it using
nice, but I want to set it while it is running.  I've heard of
renice, but we don't have it.  Any other way??

Thanx,
