    delay in a c++ file (2)

    i tried Sleep(x); but that didn't seem to work. At the top i use

    #include <iostream.h> in stead of #include <windows.h> will that make a difference?

    it makes a very very big difference, if you dont include windows.h it wont work - Sleep is defined in windows.h - so you must include it for it to work

    I just write my own.

    Code:
    inline void sleep_f (long time)
    {
          for (int I = 0; I != (time << 2); ++I) ;
    }

    the Sleep(x) function is in windows.h
    i am right
    i use this in a lot of applications
    edit--

    however if you wish to keep your code portable and not OS specific it is a good idea to code your own as above
    just create a null loop - stick it in a header and call as you wish
