    Yup! The /BUSY flag can be set by entering /GAG, also. Since Delphi
    only needs three characters (or less) for commands, /G sets the busy flag. (/B
    works just fine, too.)

    Curious that Delphi would accept a 1 letter abbreviation. Note that /G is short
    for /GAG which may be substituted for /BUSY.

    Delphi needs only three letters or less for commands… you can use fewer
    letters IF the command is unique from all others. That’s how you can “get
    away with” /G and /B.
