Hello everybody,

One thread of my programm calls the following code:

....
%x{ convert -scale '100x100>' -antialias #{src} #{dst} }
....

my question is: does this freeze all other threads until the os call is completed?

should i use something like

fork {
%x{ convert -scale '100x100>' -antialias #{src} #{dst} }
}		}
Process.wait

instead?

Any help appreciated!

-g.
