abortBoolean = THREADSTATUS[(ticks&)]
August, 2002 (Release 7)
In a threaded function, it is necessary to tell the Thread Manager when you wish to yield to other running processes. A thread which yields very little time will run faster, but will cause all other operations on the computer to run at a slower rate. The THREADSTATUS function returns a Boolean result to indicate whether or not the thread should continue operation. One reason that a thread might be asked to cease operation would be if the computer was about to shut down. When you receive a non-zero result from the THREADSTATUS statement, you should exit the threaded function immediately.
