[chuck-users] Windows XP - setting chuck.exe to "realtime" priority

I'm new to ChucK, but I'm really excited about the possibilities.

However, to get it to run well on my new Dell laptop running WinCrap XP, I
had to go CTL-ALT-DEL, open up processes, and set the priority of
chuck.exeto "realtime". Otherwise, when I create and delete shreds, I
was getting
unwanted glitching. Is there some way to automate this process, so that
chuck always has realtime priority? A command line flag would be really
helpful I guess.

Also, is it normal for me to need to do this? Strangely, despite maxing out
the CPU, on an old PIII desktop with only 256 MB RAM (as opposed to 1 gig on
the laptop) I had no problems like this and creating and deleting shreds
occurred very smoothly. That was with a clean install of WinCrap, however.

So it may be the case that on the new Dell, the out-of-the-box install has
processes running that are interfering with the audio. I know this might
veer into off topic territory due to OS issues, so if anyone has insights
specific to XP or Dells, feel free to email me privately.
