    Um, no. Mac and Windows are two very different operating systems. windows.h is for Windows programming, not Mac or any other *nix OS. I assume you're trying to get a program running on Mac OS X that uses the Win32 API?

    Then use sleep() from unistd.h

    It's in seconds, whereas Win32 Sleep() is in milliseconds.

    well what if

    well what if I want to use other functions in windows.h do I just have to find out where they are. And is there is big database type thing for that unistd.h, like there is for msdn... like for all basic mas/ Unix headers?

    sleep() is the Linux/Unix function. The function in Windows is Sleep().

    If you want a shorter sleep time than a second, use "usleep()" in Linux, it takes a time in microseconds. There's also a nanosleep, but that's essentially teh same as usleep internally, and just 3 digits longer number, but no better actual precision - if your process goes to sleep, it will sleep for more than a few nanoseconds, that's guaranteed.
