Hi all.
What i am trying to do is, using a estop switch not to stop the operation as a normal estop. but, trying to get it to just PAUSE the current operation.

the reason is that by pausing the operation when i unpause it will start form the line i paused it at instead of starting at line 1, which is what estop makes it do.

How to: i intend to connect the switch to pin 13 on the parallel port. i haven't worked it out and can't find any instructions in the forum or other forums....

PROCESS: pushing a momentary switch will change value on pin 13 of the break out board instructing the computer to pause operation, exactly like if you push the "P" key on your keyboard
