DELAY V1.0 - Alex K.H. Soya, Logan Industries, Inc. (407) 984-1627
DELAY is a small utility which does nothing but waste time. Even though
this seems sort of useless, there are a lot of cases when such a utility
may come in handy.
For example in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, I often start up several processes
(like for example the company BBS system, the CSPOOL spooler, etc) on different
consoles. At times it is important that certain processes start up before
any other processes, by using DELAY in the batch file I can accomplish this.
For example in my AUTOEXEC.BAT I start up the the CALLUS BBS on virtual
console 3 and 4. I want to make sure that console 4 starts first so the
if "%3"=="3" goto BBS
if "%4"=="4" goto BBS
bla bla for other consoles... etc
if "%3"=="3" delay 5
NETON; turn on network
LOGON 2::; logon node 002 on to this system
SUBST P: C:\CDOS; do the stuff CALLUS needs and fire it up
