So far, the only command in the IDE I have encountered that requires I type a space after it for it to be recognized as a token is Pause. I know that Pause has an optional field of text but people rarely use this option. If the space is not typed, Pause will cause an error when run in the emulator.

Why not make Pause like getKey and Prompt and all the others that take arguments. It should be recognized immediately after typing the last character. If I choose to add a message on the Pause, I will naturally space over so the space should not be required.

Thanks, Steve
By the way, other commands like Disp do require a space but they have required arguments. Pause does not have a required argument. That is why having to type a space after it when you don't want to type a text message is confusing.
Many people uses the Pause <text> or even Pause <time> so there is no need to remove the space. Pause with a space is also the official TI-BASIC character, why make it different?

Oh my. I didn't realize you could pause for a certain amount of time.... #noMoreBlankForLoops

This only works on the CE, however. TI haven't bothered to add this functionality to other z80 calculators.

Awesome! I almost exclusively use the CE. I was waiting for it to be a "SE only feature" or something, but this opens up a lot of possibilities. When you press "+" in the Catalogue on the "Pause" function it doesn't put it up. That seems like an error, but it might be a hidden use.
