You may want to search for "priority" and "nice". Those are both related terms. I cam accross these two solutions:

For some/many unixes, Proc::ProcessTable::Process provides the method priority.

For Windows,

use Win32::Process; my $obj; Win32::Process::Open($obj, $$, 0); $obj->SetPriorityClass(HIGH_PRIORITY_CLASS);

By the way, trying to get *more* CPU is not likely to make your script execute faster on a desktop system (if that's what you have). Desktop systems tend to be idle almost all the time, so there's no CPU time to steal from other applications. Needing more CPU is usually a sign of inefficient code and/or of a need of better hardware. All too often the former.

Update: Searched and found a unix and Windows module. Updated the node accordingly.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
