Re: Passing channels to jobs

pjw your latest code samples and very useful associated notes look very interesting. When I find the time I will be cheekily converting your (much easier to read now you have added some : and REMs) code, into the form I like for compiling.

Thats what SMSQ/E's inbuilt keyword SUSJB is for I don't really know how to send the WAIT code on this forum. The code I have attached were .rts or .cde files. When I tried to attach the files I ...
