Wait is designed to control the timing of commands in batch files.
If a key is pressed while Wait is running, a status message shows
when Wait will exit, and the operator may press Esc to exit immediately
or press any other key to remove the status message and resume Wait.
Wait sets ERRORLEVEL to 1 if exited by operator,
ERRORLEVEL 2 if User exits with Ctrl-C, Ctrl-Break, or System logout, etc.

(Note: Wait replaces a 1990 DOS program with the same name and basic function)
