hi all

i am using VC++ editor. Can anyone tell me how to insert sleep in my program? i have tried sleep(). but it is giving an warning

'sleep' undefined; assuming extern returning int.
Thanks in advance

It's Sleep(), note the capital 'S', and it's in windows.h. It counts in milliseconds.

Thanks Salem
how to increase it to seconds from milliseconds?

How about Sleep(1000); since 1000 ms=1 sec

What's 18 days in milliseconds ;)

commented: haha ;) +6

How about Sleep(1000); since 1000 ms=1 sec

i have tried with that but its is hardly giving me the desired effect

And what is "the desired" effect?

apparently he desires a function to convert seconds to milliseconds

now where is that function?

i know i left it around here somewhere....

It doesn't matter. There's 1000 milliseconds in a second. If you want 5 seconds then you'd pass 5000 for example.
