    questions

    i want to know how i would make my program wait a abount of time before showing somthing?
    like if i wanted it to display "hello world" a minutes into the program instead of instantly.


    and also i want to know how i would make somthing say "loading" and have the loading dots follow. one dot per second (. . . . . .).

    Read up on sleep() or Sleep()
    Depending on your OS/Compiler

    I imagine this will be OS dependent, but I could envision use of loops, Sleep(), Pause(), time.h, difftime(), etc.,

    Lightbulb A Loop and a Delay

    You're going to need a loop with a time delay.

    Check-out the sleeping FAQ and the dates & time FAQ.
