    I'm on Unix , and if I include < unistd.h >
    i can use sleep(int) where int is how many seconds to sleep.

    Its <windows.h>, and make sure you spell it Sleep(int), note the Uppercase S, and this has been posted before.

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    
    void Sleep   
    (
      DWORD dwMilliseconds
    );
    
    int main()
    {
    sleep(int);
    }

    thank you so much


    I see someone uses it , but mis-spelling, then it doesn't work.

    one more question,

    is there a delay() for function header and gotoxy(int,int)?

    i have a headage homework.. newbee though,
    that I have to write a c++ program to scroll a user input message accross screen (like java does), and make it blinking..

    It is fun and does headage after all, then I need to find resource and help.

    If you use DEV-C++ to compile clrscr(); will help to make it flash, use conio.c. But if you use MSVC++ use cout << endl; just before using SYSTEM("CLS"); as it clears the buffer. Windows.h for this one. Should help you with most of it. Then you just have to place it in an appropriate loop.
