    How to create counter

    Need to create time (in hours) counter. For example count 20 hours and save intermediate values to file, so will be enough to check time each hour (not each second). Is it possible?

    Yes.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    He answered your question, precisely and concisely. Is that bad? Did you want him to elaborate? There's no point in going on a limb only to find out you meant something else. Knowing how to ask questions can also help you in finding the answer by yourself. If English isn't your first language and you don't have enough experience with it, please acquire such experience before trying to ask questions in an english forum.

    You should read the article that Salem linked to concerning how to ask questions the smart way. You don't seem to have made any attempt to solve this yourself: "Describe the research you did to try and understand the problem before you asked the question."

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    Since this thread will not lead anywhere it can be considered as closed.

    Works for me.
    Next time, post something we can actually use.

    Not a one-sentence vague description followed by "is it possible?" or "can you help me?".
