print a string, N lines at a time
The purpose of this function is to print the string S without
scrolling off of the screen.
The first form of this function stores the string S in a MoreDevice
then prints the first N lines from the MoreDevice where N is the
integer stored in the global variable MEMORY.MoreCount. Subsequent
calls to More
print the next N lines from the MoreDevice, (each time
removing the lines from the device) until the MoreDevice is empty.
After each call to More
a line with More();
is printed as long as
the MoreDevice is not empty. This line is easily cut-and-pasted.
The user may set the number of lines to print with the command
MEMORY.MoreCount := X
, where X is an integer. The default is value
If E is any
CoCoA object, the command Sprint(E)
converts E into a string. The output may then be given
