Do you have any sample code for this?

Subject: Re: ExtProc('stat') and a timeout
I usually use "access" function for checking existence on the IFS.
Unless there is something you need from "stat", "access" is
lighter-weight, I believe. If it returns a zero, the object exists. That
object can be a *DIR (folder). I don't know whether "access" will lock
it up, however.
I am using stat to determine if a folder exists. The folder is located ona
windows server. Command works great when the server is up, but when the
server is down, the command locks up.
Code to check if folder exists...
statstr = '/qntc/184.108.40.206/flr/' + %char(name) + x'00';
xxyy = stat(statstr:mystat);
Is there a some kind of timeout value I can set so that this wont lock
