Syntax: PAUSE Duration
Pause the program (do nothing) for the specified Duration.
* Note: expressions are not allowed as arguments on the BS1.
PAUSE delays the execution of the next program instruction for the specified number of milliseconds. For example:
Flash: LOW 0 PAUSE 100 HIGH 0 PAUSE 100 GOTO Flash
This code causes pin 0 to go low for 100 ms, then high for 100 ms. The delays produced by PAUSE are as accurate as the ceramic-resonator time base (on the BASIC Stamp modules), ±1 percent. When you use PAUSE in timing-critical applications, keep in mind the relatively low speed of the PBASIC interpreter. This is the time required for the BASIC Stamp to read and interpret an instruction stored in the EEPROM.
