vrf Pause function

Question asked by VRFuser on Jul 16, 2003

Shawn,
Please examine my 'do nothing' loop.  When it is doing nothing, it does
indeed have a 1 second delay, which releases 99.999% of the processing
time.  When it is looping, the delay isn't used.

Regards

Dave

Though there are many ways to do so, you're probably better off using a
Delay object than constructing a do-nothing loop. The problem with a
do-nothing loop is that it doesn't do nothing, it eats CPU cycles that can
be put to better use elsewhere. Of course, if your design is a VEE only
system, that's no big deal, but if the computer is running other
applications VEE can get to be a real CPU hog.
