    timer question

    hi there

    i want something like this:

    printf( "print part one" [pause 2 sec] "print part two" );

    my random function is running very well... but now i
    need to put a pause between two text-parts in one part
    of my program.

    umm... will this work?

    printf( "Part 1 \n" );
    sleep(x); // where x=ms
    printf( "Part 2 \n" );

    Here is the reply

    Well you could do this


    printf("First part");
    delay(time); \\ time should be in numbers...
    printf("2nd part");


    or you can also user a for loop to delay the statement..
