[REBOL] Re: forever loops and cpu usage

From: ptretter:charter at: 8-Feb-2004 9:07

On WinXP here I can get as precise as .001 on the wait time. However, it appears that anything less than that storms the cpu back up to 99 percent. I suppose that .001 is the lowest number that the wait function can support. I'm curious why you arrived at .002. Was it the balance point for windows and linux. I would like others to report on what OS they use and report their findings. HOW LOW CAN YOU GO? dec: .001 forever [a: do now/time dec] Please let me know what OS you use and how low your dec number can be set at before your cpu usage goes up. Paul Tretter
