PAUSE

Causes execution to be halted and a message to be output.

Syntax

PAUSE

Comments

When the software encounters a PAUSE command, it halts execution (pauses) and displays the message:

Press <ENTER> to continue.

Pressing Enter causes execution of the current application program to resume at the command that follows the PAUSE.

The SET PAUSE command governs pauses during output from the LIST and OUTPUT commands. A PAUSE feature is also built into the REPORT FROM command.

The PAUSE message can be altered using the Language Customizer utility.
