SLEEP

SLEEP

This command specifies the time that the interpreter pauses. This command could be sent to the printer after sending a label format to be printed. The interpreter pauses in its processing for the amount of time specified.
Format
SLEEP <A>
Parameters
<A>
= the time in seconds (0 to 500) the interpreter pauses.
Example
This is an example of how to use the
SLEEP
command:
10 SLEEP 450
Comments
If a timer is needed, use the
Event
system. The timer will allow for processing other items, where
SLEEP
will stop execution of any ZBI commands for the specified
SLEEP
period.
This is a program command and must be preceded by a line number.
Calling
SLEEP
with
<A>
set to zero will force the ZBI task to yield to the rest of the system and allow any pending tasks to run (e.g., pending ZPL commands). If there are no pending tasks, ZBI will sleep for a minimum of 8 milliseconds.
