Should there perhaps be a "Yield()" function in Exec? BZ time?


I'm not sure that it's meaningful in AmigaOS terms, when we have premeptive multitasking a thread doesn't need to yield to let another thread execute.

@broadblues

Need to != could benefit from

It's mostly used together with mutexes. It's hard for a scheduler to do preemptive multitasking when a thread is waiting for a mutex held by another thread. The one that holds it should then yield after releasing, giving the other thread a chance to run before the first take it again.

This weeks pet peeve:
Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

is this a ratiuonal argument? look, you can compile there certainly much faster than on any os4 box, then you can simply copy the binaries via vmtools from under the vm into a directory your winuae uses for os4 emulation and test there (assuming os4 allows to mount directories as devices under uae, but i think this is the case).

Having sched_yield() in newlib would certainly be useful.

@klx300r

That's what I was thinking too, it was problem running a few program, will it be able to do what I need it to? Anyway bit sick of downloading dependency's and messing with Linux, it's problem just me, but I also seem to have problems getting build system looking in right places and so on, besides it's nightmare to test, what you compiled, not doing it naively. I don't understand how other developers manage to work like that.

It can't be worse than when I first had my A1 and no internet connection . The only time I could download stuff was at the weekends when I visited my parents house where I could access the net on my A1200. Since I didn't want to cart the A11 back and forth I found installing software was a real pain.

A friend lent me some films on disc so I downloaded a media player. I added the archive to the package manager and found that it wouldn't install due to missing dependencies. Had to wait a week to get the files and then discovered that they had some dependencies of their own so it ended taking 3 weeks just to watch a couple of films.

I was so glad when OS4 arrived and downloaded software worked out of the box without having to wait weeks to build up a collection of files just to get the damn thing to install. It's probably the reason I've never bothered with Linux since.
