Hi All:

I'm presently trying to resolve a problem in an EPICS Sequencer Program.
I need to create a delay and the SNL delay function is unsuitable for
what I need to do. Using the escape mechanism with a usr function, I am
able to create a vxWorks watchdog timer okay, but when the timer
expires, I need to return to the sequencer code. At present, my test
timer returns a message to my debug terminal as I expect (I use the
printf function). I tried every permutation I can think of on the idea
of exit(), wdDelete, wdCancel, etc. but all that happens is either a
reboot of the target or the terminal hangs. ^C, ^Z etc. won't break it.


Any ideas ?

Thanks in Advance

Russ
