Code:

/* REXX */                           
PARSE ARG SECONDS                     
SAY "SECONDS WAITING :" SECONDS       
SAY "CURRENT TIME :" TIME()           
IF SECONDS = "" THEN SECONDS = 5     
SECONDS = ABS(SECONDS)               
SECONDS = TRUNC(SECONDS,0)           
"CALL *(AOPBATCH) 'SLEEP "SECONDS"'" 
SAY "RELEASE TIME :" TIME()           
EXIT 0                               


When I execute this REXX from TSO using

Code:
 TSO REXXWAIT  10


it works fine. but when I want to execute in batch under

EXEC PGM=IKJEFT01

it gives error

Code:
AOP003E SLEEP: EDC5129I No such file or directory., errno2=53b006c


Any idea ?

Thanks,
Sena

I don't know what function you are calling but I assume that you want to wait for a specific period of time in your REXX program (for whatever strange reason).
I prefer this approach to wait for 1 second:
Code:
call syscalls 'ON'       
address syscall 'SLEEP 1'

That is easy to understand and does not rely on any additional software than pure REXX.
By the way: In my opinion a request for a WAIT is in nearly every case a strong indication of poor (or at least inappropriate) design. Please rethink your approach.

Note that the error message is coming from the AOPBATCH program, not the Rexx interpreter. The program is probably attempting to use OMVS inappropriately.
