BREAK_OFF

Syntax

BREAK_ON

BREAK_OFF

Location TinyToolkit

The command BREAK_OFF de-activates the functioning of both <CTRL><SPACE> (the Break Key) and <CTRL><F5> (the Pause Screen key) during the running of interpreted SuperBASIC programs so that they cannot be stopped by the user unless they stop either due to an error or a STOP command.

The command BREAK_ON reactivates both keys.

The function BREAK returns the current status:

IF BREAK=1 means the Break Key is active, while

IF BREAK=0 means that it is inactive.

NOTE 1

BREAK_OFF may not work on Minerva ROMs unless you have v1.10 or later of the Toolkit, which uses the new Minerva System Xtensions to overcome any problem.

NOTE 2

BREAK_OFF does not currently work with SMS.

CROSS-REFERENCE

STOP terminates interpreted programs even if the Break Key is disabled. Do not confuse with the command BREAK.
