'P'ause

Wait for frame to be drawn

Syntax

P

Description

The Pause command causes a moan program to wait until the next frame has been drawn to screen before continuing.

It is very rarely needed, as 'M'ove and 'A'nimate commands automatically wait until a frame is drawn before changing the position or frame. However, if modifiying X, Y or I registers directly in a loop, you will have to 'Pause' your program for the new values to have chance to be drawn to screen before changing them again.

See the Advanced Moan Tutorial for example usage.
