Re: limiting the CPU time allowed

Hi JD, thank you for your reply,
I am sorry, I was not clear. I mean that "if the job takes more than
certain amount of CPU time, it should be killed". Is there any way to do
it from within IDL? Some applications have an option in the calling 
command to set this kind of limit.
