    C++ Timer?

    Hey guys,

    Been doing a lot of java/.net stuff for the past couple years, but trying to get back into c++ as a side project. have always been interested in simple real time simulation apps. ive done a couple in c# for example, which has a cool timer object and associated tick functions. ive done some searching and so far understand that there is no equivalent c++ option? what features would i want to research to dabble in some real time simulation apps?

    thanks a bunch

    you can create timers with win32 apps, otherwise you could design a timer object that uses a thread and a callback function to achieve that functionality.
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
        return std::pow
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
