Input.PausePart of Input module

Syntax   Input.Pause

Description   The Input.Pause procedure simply waits for a key to be pressed and then returns. It echoes the key pressed if echo mode is set. (See View.Set for setting echo mode)

This subprogram helps avoid having to declare a variable declaration and then make a call to getchor getchar.

Example   This program pauses after every name read from the file.

        var f : int
        var line : string
        open : f, "data.txt", get
            exit when eof (f)
            get : f, line : *
            put name
        end loop
        close : f


Status   Exported qualified.

This means that you can only call the function by calling Input.Pause, not by calling Pause.
