SET TIME Command
The SET TIME command sets a CPU time limit for your job. When
your job reaches the time limit, the job stops, and a message is
printed on your terminal. You can continue your job by typing
CONTINUE, but no time limit is in effect unless it is reset.
SET TIME n
Where: n is the number of seconds of CPU time that the job is
limited to. An argument of 0 turns the time limit off.
Leaves your terminal at monitor level.
The SET TIME command is illegal in a batch job. A batch job has
its time limit set by the /TIME switch in the QUEUE or SUBMIT
command string or on the $JOB card.
Create a program with an infinite loop.
GO TO 10<RET>
Compile and load the program.
Set the time limit to 5 seconds.
.SET TIME 5<RET>
Clear the incremental run time, so that the SET TIME command can
Start the program.
?TIME LIMIT EXCEEDED<RET>
As expected, the time limit was exceeded.
