     3'''NAME'''
     4     AppBusy -- Switch YAM into busy state.  (V2.0)
     5
     6'''TEMPLATE'''
     7     TEXT
     8
     9'''FUNCTION'''
     10     Switches YAM into busy state and optionally displays a short text
     11     in the status bar.  During this state, YAM won't accept any input.
     12
     13'''INPUTS'''
     14     TEXT   - optional, a brief piece of text to display in the status bar while YAM is in busy state; the maximum length of the displayable text depends on the width of the characters used
     15
     16'''RETURNS'''
     17     RC is set to 1 if YAM was already busy.
     18
     19'''NOTES'''
     20     V2.4 introduced the concept of busy levels, meaning the command
     21     is now accumulative: if AppBusy is called several times, an equal
     22     number of calls to AppNoBusy must be made for the application to
     23     return to normal state.
     24
     25'''EXAMPLE'''
     26         /* Turn busy mode on */
     27
     28         'APPBUSY "Please wait..."'
     29
     30         /* Say we are doing something different */
     31
     32         'APPBUSY "Making coffee..."'
     33
     34         /* Turn busy mode off */
