version 1.5 (2/1/2007) with FREE_ENDUSER license
version 1.4.a have a bug, only if missing config label values.

Automatic HP-UX pid renicer and serializer
For use in HP-9000 (others?) unix systems with 'HP-UX'  B.10.20 or higher

This is an 'automatic renicer' program:
Get variable CPU time to pids depending on defined nice-value and
names or patterns in configuration file, by once renice if matching:

-At startup, priotc renice all pids to defined nice.
.When priotc is already running, watch ONLY for renice NEW pids
 or equal pid if a change in command-name or program-name is
 detected (like occurs in an exec command).
 Then, at any time, any nice value or serialize is valid by manually
 'renicer', 'serialize' user commands and the hp-ux restrictions.

This is also an 'automatic serializer program:
Serialize a pid with nice >= that defined in configuration file
if actually low free pages in the system.

-For system performance, all serialized pids run togheter in a 
 sequential no timeshare cpu use, only if hp-ux detect low free
 pages. If enough pages, serialized pids run also timeshare.
 Priotc serialize pids with high nice value (run slow)
 >=that defined nice for serialize in the configuration file.
