digitalmars.D.learn - Setting thread priority

It appears that std.thread had an answer for this, but it has been 
removed from Phobos by the looks of things.

On a side note, why is std.thread still in the online documentation if 
it was removed long ago? What's the point of having a tool to 
automatically generate documentation if we're going to have out of date 
docs anyway?

Use core.thread. And I believe the method name is setPriority.

depends on operating system - on windows: set the priority to high does not help if your system isn't under pressure ...
