Function : AddIn
OSPreemptOccasionally - Cause a server add-in task to give up control.
#include <osmisc.h> void LNPUBLIC OSPreemptOccasionally( void);
This function causes a server add-in task to give up control, so that other tasks on the machine can run. It is intended to be used within compute-bound loops in a server add-in task.
This function only has an effect on operating systems, such as Windows, that do not preempt compute-bound tasks. Under preemptive operating systems, this function does nothing.
Under operating systems that need it, OSPreemptOccasionally is included within the AddInIdle call. Therefore, standard add-in task loops (that are not compute bound) do not require OSPreemptOccasionally. OSPreemptOccasionally is quite fast however, so there is little penalty for including it in your program.
Output : (routine) - None
