MSG - display message on error line

Syntax:
MSG [message]

Description:
The MSG command displays a message on the message line . This command is usually issued from a macro file. This is similar to EMSG , but MSG does not sound the bell if SET BEEP is on.

If the number of messages displayed on the message line exceeds the number of lines defined in the message line as set by SET MSGLINE , a prompt will be displayed. If a macro is being executed, the prompt will indicate that the user may terminate the macro by pressing the SPACE bar or any other key to continue execution of the macro.

XEDIT: Compatible.
KEDIT: Compatible.
