sleep command error (Windows)
« on: October 17, 2008, 11:58:52 PM »
I'm rebuilding our qube system and I cannot get it to execute a sleep command.  The  proper versions of Python and Perl are installed, but it is still listing the sleep command as

"not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

I should be able to type in: qbsub sleep 50

There is no sleep command as such under Windows. You can emulate it using Perl:

qbsub perl -e "sleep 50;"
