I have a program that reads a log, sleeps for a while then checks if there
are any more records.

I am doing;

DoW process <> 'STOP';
exec SQL prepare S0 from :SQLstmt;
exec SQL declare C0 cursor for S0;
exec SQL open C0 using :startTimeStamp;
exec SQL fetch C0 INTO :LogDS;

DOW SQLCOD = *ZEROS;

<processing entries received>
ENDDO;
exec SQL close C0;
enddo;

The value for startTimeStamp is incremented for any logs found and the
latest value will be used when the program wakes up.

Is this the correct and efficient way to do this ? ( I think I am just too
used to SETLL ==> Read )

Thank you to any comments

Cheers

Don
