Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Use Sleep API to add pauses to your programs

Don't use an empty For...Next loop to add pauses to your programs; instead, use the Sleep API function, that releases the CPU and lets other apps in the system effectively multitask:

Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal milliseconds As Long)
' pause for 5 seconds
Sleep 5000
Note that this technique only works 32-bit editions of Visual Basic; there is no equivalent function in the Win16 API.
