I have wroten a program in djgpp that run in a Windows NT DOS windows.
This program is normaly in a bussy wait loop waiting for some interrupt.
The problem is that this program use a lot of CPU time. I have tried to
use the _dpmi_yield service to free the CPU but contiue using all the
CPU procesor.

It is posible to free the CPU in a bussy wait loop using another call?
