Need delays in display

P: n/a

Hi all

I want to have delays while calling the method(which basically
displays the information).I am using MSVC++. How can I achieve that?
Any clues pls......
I have an idea that in Java we can use sleep() for threads but what
abt in c++?

In other words I want a method to be called after a particular time
interval ..may be few seconds interval...

Thanks

The _standard_ C++ language has no delay or sleep functions.
These are platform specific functions.


Specifically -- POSIX conforming platforms.


....and quite a few non-POSIX conforming platforms.

But given these two facts...

1. POSIX is off-topic here.

2. The OP specifically stated he is using Microsoft's compiler, and
therefore is not running on a POSIX platform.

[snip off-topic drivel mentioning "unistd.h"]

Kindly engage brain before posting, dipstick.

The _standard_ C++ language has no delay or sleep functions. These
are platform specific functions. Check your compiler's documentation.

E. Robert,

Please note that POSIX compliant platforms do have a sleep()
function, the _functionality_ may be in other operating
systems under other other names, such as semaphores, mutexes,
signals and events. All of this is off-topic in _this_
newsgroup.
