Limit CPU usage for an application/process
Authored by: Kalak on Feb 02, '11 10:49:15AM

cpulimit has been ported to OSX in the subversion repository. Ironically, the checkout I just compiled form from there used all extra CPU time to run cpulimit. (any coders want to make a patch?)

While this script is a bit of a hack, I'm keeping it around, since I've got a similar use, and I get tired of hearing the cooling fans on my MBP when I'm in no hurry, and this is working more or less as described.

I am, and always will be, an Idiot.
