It should be given in hundredths of a second. For example, the following code will pause for 20/100s = 0.2 seconds: :: Pause("20").execute() The reason the *spec* must be given as a *string* is because it can then be used in dynamic value evaluation. For example, the following code determines the time to pause at execution time: :: action = Pause("%(time)d") data = {"time": 37} action.execute(data) """ def _parse_spec(self, spec): interval = float(spec) / 100 return interval def _execute_events(self, interval): time.sleep(interval) return True
