So... it won't work unless K NUM 1 is used... AND I must READ the
actual display file... 

OK, this is pretty neat. (Considering I've only been doing RPG for a
few years.) Is there a way to change the WAITRCD parameter from within
RPG, or is that at CL-only function. For instance, a patron runs their
card through the machine, and the account is still on the system. (We
merge accounts periodically and mail the patron new cards, but
sometimes the old one gets used.) If the account is valid, I want the
screen to time out after 10 seconds. But if the account number is
invalid, I'd like a timeout of say, 5 seconds... 

Can this be accomplished within RPG, or do I need to call a CL program
from RPG with the # of seconds as a paramter, let the CL do the
OVRDSPF, then call a second small RPG program to read the display?
