STOP

Syntax:

STOP

STOP ALL

STOP ALIGNMENT CHECK

STOP ARGUMENT CHECK etc.

Function:

When FPT is used interactively, users may suspend the current activity and start another. For example, an argument check might be suspended to search for a particular variable, and then resumed. The commands STOP and CONTINUE are used to control activities in this way.

STOP issued to the Page> prompt stops output to the user's screen and suspends the current activity. FPT returns to the FPT> prompt. The suspended process may be resumed by the CONTINUE command.

STOP ARGUMENT CHECK, STOP NAME CHECK or STOP ALL, issued to the FPT> or Page> prompt aborts the named process. Most processes with long reports may be aborted in this way.

STOP ALL aborts all outstanding activities.

STOP issued without arguments to the FPT> prompt has no effect. This prevents accidental termination of a process.
