Using C$SLEEP In A Cobol Program

Using C$SLEEP In A Cobol Program

Using C$SLEEP In A Cobol Program

I have used C$SLEEP in ACUCobol, ISCobol, MFCobol and RMCobol programs to delay execution of code within the program by a certain number of seconds while another process is executing.

When I try to use the same code in NetCobol (Fujitsu) (when linking my program), it says that it does not recognize that program; it is not available. Apparently, the built in system routine for C$SLEEP is not available for Fujitsu cobol.

Could you provide me with a coding example you might be aware of for NetCobol programming so that I could get the equivalent 'wait' time that I get in the other flavors of cobol. Maybe it cannot be a call to a system program. Maybe it has to be some routine.

You would be the expert to help me to make the program work like other flavors of Cobol do and I thank you for taking time to share it with me.

This program is in a distributed environment and not mainframe.
