    Details

    The syntax is:
    LOAD DELAYCMD <seconds> "command to be executed"
    Seconds can be from 1 to 3600. Be sure to put the command in quotes.

    For example, I've put this in AUTOEXEC:

    LOAD COMMEXEC
    LOAD DLM
    LOAD SMA
    LOAD DELAYCMD 5 "CSLOAD MYPROFILE"
    LOAD DELAYCMD 30 "LOAD AS400PCS MYPROFILE"
    etc.

    Guess you'd put DELAYCMD nnn "LOAD HOSTPRINT" or whatever here too.(I don't know the syntax of how you load it, but you get the idea.)

    Works for me. If anybody wants it, feel free to pass it around. It's public, and I hereby disclaim any rights or responsibility.

    Note: DELAYCMD.NLM is the creation of Larry McCloskey of Bus-Tech - M. Grimm

    Note from a user of this tool: I've found that this works well - better in certain circumstances than the delay.nlm built into NetWare 5. Among other things, it gives you the colon prompt back while it's waiting. It looks like source code to the NLM is included in the zip.
