Getting Input from the Tool operator

There are several ways to get communicate with the tool operator, and to get and use answers from them.

The PAUSE command

A PAUSE command, without a time value after it or a comment before it, will display a "Continue" box like this.

If the PAUSE command follows a comment, that comment will appear in a message box. The only options the operator has, though, is OK to continue or CANCEL to end the file. If you had these lines in your file:

'Start cutting now?

PAUSE

Then this box would appear on the screen:
