Obviously everything on a computer is done via programming. The issue is if YOU (the user, running the program) control it, so YOU did something to force a program to a core, or if the programmer who wrote the program did it, and you have no control over the behavior or not.
Getting clearer for you?

said by JohnInSJ:my friend, the point is that "programatic" has nothing to do with how the code is executed. whether an app does it or i do it via some gui button doesn't change that both methods are "programatic".

"It's possible to ask for processor affinity ... programmatically"
that's the only way it can be done, and therefore you haven't made any useful point here.
now, saying that the program itself has the ability to set it's own affinity is useful to say... but not at all relevant to the question i asked.
