PROGRAM: WAITUNTL.COM

GENERAL FUNCTION: To wait until a particular time arrives.

WHY IS IT NEEDED? There is no easy way in DOS to trigger events
in batch files based on time of day.

INSTALLATION: None

FORMAT: WAITUNTL HH:MM:SS

EXAMPLES: WAITUNTL 23:59:58

HOW TO USE IT: This can be used in batch files to simply wait until
a certain time passes. The program continually displays the current
time, which makes it easy to compare to the time set in WAITUNTL.
WAITUNTL makes it easy to trigger a series of events based on time,
such as downloading data at 6am and running a series of reports at
6:15 to have ready when you get in.

OTHER EFFECTS: None

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Works with DOS 1.1, 2.x, and 3.0.
