Vrf - timer reading

Question asked by VRFuser on Feb 8, 1999
I can't help but feel responsible for this one.
On the one hand I
can?t
use breakpoints if I built my program with Formula object having Formula
control pin.
This is because you're stepping outside what HP says vee does. Calling a
function in this way puts the rest of vee out of commision and devotes total
resources to that function, as far as I know. So, vee ain't there to see
where you've set the break point.
In addition, be careful using this, nothing else is running so you can
potentially get stuck in there. We were setting error codes and had an error
handler polling the error code. Didn't happen. Build timeouts into these
functions.
