Set Pause


Namespace: WIN_COM_API
SET PAUSE ON/OFF

This command is some sort of dBaseIV compatibility command. What it does in dBaseIV I have no clue.

Doesn't do anything, but doesn't generate an error in VFP either...

I think that it was used in FoxPro DOS, in what you can pause program execution with the Pause key.

SET PAUSE is used in dBase IV to control SQL SELECT behaviour. SET PAUSE ON pauses SQL output as you may know from DISPLAY command, SET PAUSE OFF behaves like a LIST command. [Pavel Celba]
