Specs: DOS 6.0
I have this school project going on about DOS, I have made a functioning menu but now I need to make a message appear when a choice is made. When the choice is made the message needs to be displayed for 5 seconds and then the program must proceed to execute itself. I have tried many things in edit but I can't seem to get it working.

can anybody help me out?
