I can only assume that you want to use this to allow a process to finish. If so, then you can use the "wait" command. Look it up on perldoc.perl.org.

Jeff is having a hard time currently, I think he meant to suggest the sleep() function. But for sleep() times less than a second you probably need Time::HiRes
