wait[edit | edit source]

wait { duration <number> }

Pauses execution of the script for the specified <number> in seconds.

Arguments:

duration <number>
Number of seconds to pause execution of the script. Default is 1.0 second.


CELX equivalent:

Based on the wait() function.

  • The function wait( <number> ) is predefined in Celestia to wait <number> seconds.
    It is special because it returns control to Celestia, which you have to do to avoid blocking Celestia.
wait( <number> )


Example:
The following example pauses script execution for 15 ¼ seconds.

CEL:

wait { duration 15.25 }

CELX with the wait() function:

wait(15.25)
