Thread: Returning Actual Seconds

    Returning Actual Seconds

    I'm trying to code a small program that acts as a 'quasi' timer.

    In the middle of the screen I need the Time HH:MM:SS
    to be refreshed every second. Starting at 00:00:00.

    Any ideas on where to begin ?
    Or does anyone have some sample code
    they wouldn't mind sharing.

    ..This Program is out of Curiosity..

  2. #2
    #include <iostream>
    using std::cout;
    #include <unistd.h>
    int main ()
        int sec = 0;
        while (1) {
            cout << sec++ << '\r';
            sleep (1);
         return 0;
    that's one easy way to count seconds. i'm sure there's a way to sleep with windows. i just can't remeber the header file. that should get your started, right?
