Reply with quote

Hi all

I am coding a rexx program where i have to allocate a dataset.There's a chance that this dataset might be locked to another user who has exclusive access to that and it'll get freed eventually.Is there any option in ALLOC commnad like "WAIT" so that program will wait until resource get released or do i need do verify the resource status using SYSDSN RC and ALLOC RC in infitinite loop.I know infinite is not a good idea since im buring CPU time.Any thoughts here.

I came accross an assemmbler routine which uses "STIMER" option to get the program instructions out of real storage for specified period of time and we can run this using rexx.

Any idea about how to run this assembler in rexx.

Thanks for the help
Satya

You can find a sleep routine on the internet.

Hi

I have the sleep routine with me but not sure how to call it in REXX.You have any sample code with you and can you tell me the steps to execute it.

Thanks
Satya

if bpxwdyn('alloc fi(sdsfdd) new space(5,5) cyl',
'msg(2)')<>0 then do
say 'Temp data set allocation failed'
address syscall 'sleep 6'
return
end
