bulk88,

Great! I answered to let other monks know that there was something similar to sleep() in JS.

I use it to update a digital clock on a CRM package. Twice a second, it updates the clock. Before I used the setTimeout, the user's PC was totally overloaded with calls to the clock update routine and there was no cpu power left for other things (like input) :-)

Thanks...Ed

[Corion]: This is because Filter::Simple does some string-trickery, replacing all string literals with "quoted packed numbers"
[Corion]: I fear this might be a bug in the RE engine, but if it is a bug, even fixing won't help me because I need Filter::Simple for Filter::signatures , which provides signatures as a backwards compatibility feature for Perl <5.22 - and these ...
[Corion]: ... won't get a fix anyway ;) My plan B is to encode the string placeholders avoiding \r and \n
