Suspend command line for window event processing
general - quit only when key pressed. This keyword may be to apply idle for any widget program running in the cafe environment (example: xloadct). If this keyword is not used the command immediately stops when no wplot window is present.
This command is related to the wplot command. If wplot is called with the option /idle the command line may be used as before. The problem is that on the other hand wplot buttons can not be used because cafe could not support processing of widget events (like button click etc.). This is the job for the idle command. When executing, the command line is suspended but the wplot window may be used.
Press any key to stop the IDLE command.
Polls for widget events.
