[Ironruby-core] Thread priority

Hello,

 

I’ve looked into this and it is pretty easy to implement.  But I have a question before I send any modification.

The Clr Thread works with 5 levels (Lowest, BelowNormal, Normal, AboveNormal and Highest) but based on the ruby doc a ruby thread works with an integer for priority.  So I’ve decided to go with the following mapping 

 

Lowest                 <= -2

BelowNormal    == -1

Normal                 == 0

AboveNormal    ==1

Highestvalues    >= 2

 

Is that correct ?

 

Excuse me if that’s too basic but I’m pretty new to Ruby and even newer to IronRuby.

 

Thanks;

Pascal

Thread#priority attribute is not implemented yet, that’s why the CLR property is picked up.

It should be easy to implement it. Any volunteer?

You can just use the enum from ironruby

System::Threading::ThreadPriority.normal

Hi there,

Ruby allows to set the thread priority using the priority= method:
Thread.new do
 Thread.current.priority = -1
 ... blah blah blah ...
end

This is not available in IronRuby because priority maps to the
System.Threading.Thread priority property which looks for the
ThreadPriority enum. Is it going to change or is this the right behavior
for IronRuby?

Thanks,
Shay.
