The "@-code" is probably easier. Just embed a "@PAUSE@" (without the quotes) in your file at the appropriate place(s).
My fault I wasn't more clear. It's a text file generated nightly. I won't be able to add @ codes. I thought maybe there was a displayfile(); function or something I could use to write it to the screen.
Right now I'm doing something like this -
This works fine, but it comes out as one big dump and everyone has to scroll up to read the results. Thanks!

Re: Display a long text file with pauses

Is there a function I can call to dislay a text file with pauses.
I can read the text file into a variable and then display the file, but it's just a dump. I figured there is probably a display file function I'm missing.
The easiest method is console.printfile().
If you want to do it more manually for some reason, you can use the File methods to read the data and then console.putmsg() to display it (with screen-pauses).
