    Sure:

    Existing script:

    ... use threads; ## Additional line 1 ... async{ ## Additional line 2 ## existing, long running, cpu intensive code here }; ## Additional line 3 ...

    Now the gui will be responsive, whilst the long running code runs full speed without changes.


    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
