I’ve just had a requirement for a sleep command in ASP, apparently there isn’t one (not that I can find). There is a Wscript.Sleep for command line VBS’s but nothing in ASP.
So, I’ve written a really quick simple one that some might find useful –
Sub Sleep(intSecs) Dim dtStart, boolDone dtStart = now() boolDone = False While Not boolDone If DateDiff("s",dtStart,now()) >= cint(intSecs) Then boolDone = True End If Wend End Sub
Update: As noted in the comments, this really *shouldn’t* be used as it pins your CPU. If you must use it, please be aware of what it’s doing.
