MATLAB Function Reference    

Halt execution temporarily



pause, by itself, causes M-files to stop and wait for you to press any key before continuing.

pause(n) pauses execution for n seconds before continuing, where n can be any real number. The resolution of the clock is platform specific. A fractional pause of 0.01 seconds should be supported on most platforms.

pause on allows subsequent pause commands to pause execution.

pause off ensures that any subsequent pause or pause(n) statements do not pause execution. This allows normally interactive scripts to run unattended.
