Red language is a native-code compiled functional, imperative, symbolic, and homoiconic programming language that re-uses most of REBOL's syntax and semantics. Both static and JIT compilation support are planned. A strong emphasis is made on concurrency and both task and data parallelism support using an actor-like abstraction and parallel collections (Scala-like). The target range of usage spreads from low-level system programming (thanks to the built-in Red/System C-level DSL) and embedded systems, up to high-level scripting, with an optional REPL console.

Release Notes: This release brings variable function argument support, limited polymorphism, command-line argument access, low-level stack access, new debugging functions, and an improved "print" function. It also fixes several bugs for complex math expressions and closes a dozen tickets from the issue tracker. Last, but not least, Red's memory allocator has been implemented.

Download Website 13 Aug 17:53 cpulimit 1.4


cpulimit is a simple program that attempts to limit the CPU usage of a process (expressed in percentage, not in CPU time). This is useful to control batch jobs when you don't want they eat too much CPU. It does not act on the nice value or other scheduling priority details, but on the real CPU usage. Also, it is able to adapt itself to the overall system load, dynamically and quickly.

Release Notes: CPUlimit can now handle limiting CPU usage on multi-core systems, giving the user the option to set limits above 100%. Error checking is now in place to avoid memory errors if CPUlimit cannot read the proc file system.
