    Quzah.
    manuals seem unintellegent about this. i really wonder whether it's XP related trouble.. i do not remember such troubles while using Win 98 in recent past..

    Maybe since your compiler is old its using an old windows.h (pre Win95)?

    The requirments for Sleep() are:

    Requires Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows NT Workstation, Windows Me, Windows 98, or Windows 95
    Sure its not a 16bit compiler?

    Open up winbase.h

    Is Sleep() in there?

    it's in there!
    Code:
    WINBASEAPI
    VOID
    WINAPI
    Sleep(
        DWORD dwMilliseconds
        );
    about compiler:
    i do not know how to find out which compiler is used (i compile in IDE window by pressing a button) but it should be 32bit compiler. i think so coz both 16bit and 32bit compilers are available and perhaps it decides automatically which one to use.

    one way to find out, sizeof(int)...

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        printf("&#37;d\n", sizeof(int));
        return 0;
    }
    Generally, (presuming you have a "normal" computer)
    2 = 16 bit
    4 = 32 bit

    2... poor me

    maybe any1 using Borland C++ 4.51 knows how to set 32 compiler up?

    Perhaps its time for a new compiler?

    If you want something simple with an IDE, then look into DevC++ (outdated), LCC/LCC~Win32 or PellesC (yummy)

    Well.. Borland C++ 4.51, which i use has a 32 bit compiler. i just need to set it up so i will read manuals again and meantime if any1 having experience with this would drop a line would be gr8! thanks for helping me Gr8 forum really!

    Why are you so keen on Borland C++ 4.51?, Borland C++ 4.00 was released in 1993 (thats well over 10 years ago). If you plan on doing windows programming at least update the includes & libs.

    well, it's money problem. ... i hope to make 32bit compiler working!

    I'm pretty sure the Borland compilers have sleep(). At least in the later versions, IIRC it's prototyped in stdlib.h.
