FRAT is a CAOS command used to slow down the ANIMation frame rate of an agent.

Usage[edit]

Syntax: FRAT (command) FRAMERATE (integer)

This sets the frame rate on the TARGet agent. When the agent is a compound agent, the part affected by FRAT can be set with the PART command. Allowable rates are from 1 (normal speed) to 255. FRAT must be reset manually to 1 after being used.

Example[edit]

Note the use of OVER in the following examples to force the code to wait until the animation is complete.

In a compound agent:

part 5
frat 3
anim [3 0 3 0 3 0]
over
frat 1

In a simple agent:

frat 3
anim [3 0 3 0 3 0]
over
frat 1
