As you can tell, I know very little.
I did find some timers, but they were complete routines... and when I tried to "plug them in" into some existing scripts I have... I seem to have problems with subroutines inside of subroutines... or one function inside of another.
So... I am looking for a one line command that says "delay this many seconds before going to the next command."
Nevertheless, other commands that follow the setTimeout() line will continue to execute, so the effect is not the same as "don't do anything for xxx milliseconds".
