Pausing during a loop

Post by stu2010 » Wed Jul 23, 2014 11:20 am

I am running a loop of different graphs
This may be silly, but is it possible to pause the loop for a few seconds before it continues onto the next iteration.

Try calling this func with the desired argument

Code: Select all

// argument is in seconds
func pause() { local tmp
  while (startsw()-tmp<$1) { }
  return startsw()-tmp
