// Use this for initialization void Start () { print("Starting " + Time.time); coroutine = WaitAndPrint(3.0f); StartCoroutine(coroutine); print("Done " + Time.time); }

public IEnumerator WaitAndPrint(float waitTime) { while (true) { yield return new WaitForSeconds(waitTime); print("WaitAndPrint " + Time.time); } } void Update () { if (Input.GetKeyDown("space")){ StopCoroutine(coroutine); print("Stopped " + Time.time); } } }
