[REBOL] Re: forever loops and cpu usage

From: greggirwin::mindspring::com at: 8-Feb-2004 11:25

Hi Paul, PT> Seems to be a consensus developing. Is this how other languages handle this PT> issue also? Basically, yes. That is, this is a basic scenario. If you're writing some kind of event-driven system (e.g. a GUI framework), sometimes there are more complex interactions. For example, under Windows calling certain APIs (GetMessage, PeekMessage) yield to the system in specific ways to keep a task from eating the CPU. Even deeper, there is just a big message pump running, so you see the System Idle process using all the CPU time if nothing else is going on. -- Gregg
