     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 */
