Script PAUSE Statement

PAUSE {n [SECOND[S]] | [UNTIL time]}

Use the PAUSE statement to halt script processing for a period of time or until a specific time of day.

Enter the number of seconds, n, as an integer or a variable. If n equals zero, the pause is forever.

The UNTIL time option allows you to specify a certain time of the day, using a 24-hour clock.

For example:

PAUSE 1 SECOND             \* pause for 1 second
PAUSE UNTIL 14:45          \* pause until 2:45 pm
