Functions with Side Effects

The functions in this section are not purely functional. Unless otherwise noted, none of them can be called in parallel--they cannot be called within an apply-to-each construct. The routines in this section are not part of the core language, they are meant for debugging, I/O, timing and display. Because these functions are new it is reasonably likely that the interface of some of these functions will change in future versions. The user should check the most recent documentation.
