AmigaOS 4.0 - About OS4 - Commands
||To wait for a specified time.
[SEC | SECS]
[MIN | MINS]
WAIT is used in command sequences or after RUN to wait for a certain period, or to wait until a certain time. Unless you specify
otherwise, the waiting period is one second.
The <n> argument specifies the number of seconds if SEC or
SECS is specified. If MIN or MINS is
specified, it is taken to be minutes instead. If only the <n> argument is specified, it defaults to seconds.
Use the keyword UNTIL to wait until a particular time of the day, given in the format HH:MM.
3.OS4:> WAIT 10 MINS
waits 10 minutes.
3.OS4:> WAIT UNTIL 21:15
waits until 9:15 p.m.
