fn: console



The syntax for console calls is:




The console function is for outputting text to the console with a linebreak automatically added to the end, it takes an aribtrary number of parameters. You can use endl as a parameter for flushed line breaks, \n for unflushed.

Note: If you want multiple console calls to print to the console without being interrupted by output from threads building other files then use console.lock and console.unlock.

Note: Nift will skip to the first non-whitespace (ie. to the first character that is not a space, tab or newline) after a console call and inject it to the output file where the call started. If you want to prevent Nift from doing this put a '!' after the call, eg.:

@console("hello, world!")!


The following options are available for console calls:

option description
b or block read and output block of text following console call
!pb do not parse block of text
option description
