You would use it in a script file to delay the time that slides are shown on the screen. After using "mslide", you can use "vslide" to look at a single slide, but if you have a series of slides for presentation or whatever, you write a script. In "delay" script time, 1000 is equal to 1 second, so if you set the delay for 4000, then it should display the slide for 4 seconds.
Use the "mslide" command, and save your view as "Top".
Save another slide called "front".
Save another slide called "left".
Copy this script, and save it as "Slideshow.scr"
Enter "script" at the command line, and watch it work.Code:VSLIDE top DELAY 1000 VSLIDE front DELAY 2000 VSLIDE left DELAY 3000 RSCRIPT
Enter different delay times, or put ";" (semicolon) in front of each line that starts with delay, and see how quick it displays the slides, then you will see the need for Delay.
