I have a C-program, that must be started, say every X seconds. X is something like 60...300.
Can anyone explain me, how this can be done under OS/400?
I understand, that WRKJOBSCDE is not an option...

Surely it would be better to start the program once and have it sleep for n seconds between processing. That would avoid the overhead of starting umpteen jobs as well as make it easier to locate problems.

        system("DLYJOB 60");

You could have this job start automatically when the system starts, when a subsystem starts, via a job scheduler, or provide a command to start it. Pass the number of seconds to sleep as a parameter, or store it in a file or data area.
