If you are not in BitNode-4, then you must have Level 3 of Source-File 4 in order to use this function.

This function will automatically set you to start working on creating the specified program. If you are already in the middle of some “working” action (such as working for a company, training at a gym, or taking a course), then running this function will automatically cancel that action and give you your earnings.
