    NAME
        motors - enable/disable the motor hardware for debugging scripts

    USAGE
        motors [on/off]

    DESCRIPTION
        With off as an argument, this command will disable motor
	movement. Any commands that control the motors with 'motors off' in
	effect will NOT move the motors. Counters will act as if the motors 
	were sent to their positions, but the motors will not be moved.

	Run scripts will execute faster when 'motors off' is in effect,
	which can speed up the run script debugging process.

	When motors are disabled with this command, the current position
	of the motors are saved. When you re-enable the motors with 
	'motors on', the counters will jump back to the actual positions
	of the motors before motors off was issued, avoiding confusion over 
	where the motors REALLY are.

    EXAMPLES
        cam 12        # Runs the camera 12x
	motors off    # Disable running the motors
	cam 12        # Counter will advance 12x, but motor wont run
        motors on     # Enable motors. Counters revert to actual posn. 
        cam 12        # Run the camera normally

    BUGS
        None.
