How to "pause" a command

Postby mace » Wed May 14, 2008 8:36 pm

I have a shutdown routine for the operators with a bunch of commands in it,ie. (/*$VS,'STOP RMF.RMF) the problem I'm having is I have
2 parts of a product part "a" must stop 1st then part "b" can stop. If part "a" doesn't stop then part "b" can't and the operators must
manually enter the command to stop part "b".
I have "a" at the beginning and "b' at the end of the command string but not enough time is passing for "a" to complete .
I seem to remember being able to place a pause or wait in this but I can't find the doc.
Any help is greatly appreciated

How about adding a final step to "A" that submits the shutdown command for "B"?
