I've only ever seen the delay() inside a when. Outside, folk use taskDelay(n_of_ticks) (or, in the operating system independent models, epicsTimeSleep(n_of_ticks).

Hi,

the snc manual says that the delay() function can only be used inside a when
expression.  Is this really true?  Isn't it just a finction that returns true or
false?  I want to use it inside a for statement.

TIA
