PAUSE4 Run code while pausing for specified time.

PAUSE4(n) ... PAUSE4 should be used as a clause that wraps code that is intended to run during a specified interval. n is in seconds, and it can be fractional. PAUSE4 without any arguments completes the pause routine.

<code 1>
<code 2>

This will run <code 1> during "pause" period, and <code 2> will be executed 2 seconds after PAUSE4(2) command.

This is useful if you want to maintain a regular interval, but do not want intermediate code to disrupt the interval. If the execution of <code 1> is longer than the pause period, <code 2> will execute immediately after the clause.
