     Executive brings real multitasking to AmigaOS. Executive is a
     UNIX-like process scheduler for Amiga. It also has plenty of other
     features previously available only in larger operating systems.

     Executive improves the responsiveness of your Amiga. One CPU
     intensive application no longer causes the whole system to crawl.
     You can start many CPU intensive applications and the system still
     feels as if it would be totally idle.

     The Executive package also includes many useful client programs
     that let you control tasks and monitor what is going on in your
     system.

     The core of Executive is a scheduler that recalculates task
     priorities based on system load average and task's recent CPU
     usage. The scheduler will give high priority to interactive tasks
     and low priority to CPU intensive tasks.

     Lets say you are printing a document from a word processor. You
     can't do much else while the document is being printed. This isn't
     multitasking. With Executive you could also do some heavy rendering
     and C-compiling in the background at the same time. You could surf
     the web with your favorite browser without even noticing all these
     programs running in the background.

     Executive consists of a server and clients. The server is run
     in the background and it takes care of scheduling, CPU usage
     calculations and many other things. Some important features of
     the server:

       - precise (1/1000 seconds) CPU usage timing
       - six different scheduling algorithms
       - load averages
       - process identifiers
       - process group identifiers
       - accounting
       - focus - task with active window gets more CPU time
       - MultiUser support

     The client programs are:

       Acct            Accounting daemon
       ALoad           Display load average or CPU usage
       ALoad3D         Display load averages in 3D
       Commander       General task manager
       Ctp             Extended ChangeTaskPri
       Dashboard       The mother of all meters
       Kill            Extended Break
       Lastcomm        List last commands executed
       Meter           Display system information
       Nice            Run programs with lower scheduling priority
       Ps              Process status displayer
       Pstree          Display child-parent relationships
       Renice          Renice a task
       Sa              Display accounting statistics
       Stat            Display some misc. information
       Timer           Time shell and Workbench programs
       Top             Display information about top CPU tasks
       Uptime          Display system uptime and load averages

     Executive is fully compatible with all Amiga computers running AmigaOS
     release 2.04 or newer.

     Executive is the highest rated item of shareware CU Amiga magazine
     has ever awarded at 98%. Executive V2.00 got 97% from the same
     magazine, and it was ranked as "the best shareware utility ever."
