    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Yes or no, depending on how broad your definition of Linux is.

    >or is it available on Windows compilers too?
    That would be nice...

    I meant GCC, but I guess I wasn't clear enough (at all).

    >That would be nice...
    Dang. I guess I'll take that as a no.

    In that case, does anyone know of anything like the usleep function in unistd.h for Windows? (For those who don't know, usleep gives you microsecond-level control over sleep time).

    I believe that DJGPP supports usleep. For other compilers you'll probably have to write your own by calling something like QueryPerformanceCounter.

    Ahh screw it. I'll just stick with what time.h offers me.
