    Question sleep... ahhhh...

    I use borland. For a while now I've been working on using the sleep functions... none of them work... can anyone give me a working sleep function (that doesn't use the processer ticks... or whatever ya might call it)?

    i used this in bcc55, is it the same thing as sleep

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <time.h>
    
    int f_wait (int);
    
    main()
    {
    	f_wait (4);
    	cout<<"hello";//notes
    	return(0);
    }
    
    int f_wait(int SecondsToWait)
    {
    	time_t TheTime = time(NULL);
    	while(time(NULL) - TheTime < SecondsToWait);
    	return 1;
    }

    If it's a newer version of borland, it should have Sleep().

    #include <windows.h>
    .
    .
    Sleep(1000); //Sleep 1 second
