    What is the correct way to use no pause when using console.printfile?

    console.printfile(filename [,mode=P_NONE])

    Or at least point me to a js file I can look it up in. :)

    Thanks!

    A "jiffy" is actually 1/100 of a second.

    Just thought I'd throw this out there: has anyone actually looked this up?
    The best, most concise definition I found:

    1) 1/100 of a second 2) one millisecond 3) approximately one nanosecond
    4) indeterminate time from a few seconds to forever

    'jiffy' has to be the most general word in the english language! ;)

    Thanks! But I guess I was using an old bullet.js and its changed a bit
    so the line is:

    load(new Object, "typeasc.js", str, "BullsEye Bulletin #"+b);

    What I am trying to accomplish is to have bulletin just dump the file
    and have any pause in the asc or whatever file I am displaying.

    I put in the "-nopause" between str & "BullsEye.." but after the two
    sections of my bulletin file are displayed, I still got the [Hit any
    Key] at the end of the file.

    I suppose there is something I am missing in there..

    Thanks!

    Like the fact its not on the console.print line that is a few lines up:

    console.printfile(mod_dir+"bullseye/text/bullseye.asc", P_NOPAUSE);

    Posting the question always helps point out the obvious answer. :P

    Thanks!

    ;) I wonder if it could also be used as an adjective, meaning "like Jif peanut butter". :P

    I always heard that a Jiffy was 1/60th of a second, based on AC cycles or timer interrupts on a Commodore PET.

    So you tried load(new Object, "typeasc.js", "-nopause", str, "BullsEye..."); ? That should work.
