Tcl_Sleep





Tcl_Sleep(3)         Tcl Library Procedures                   7.5



_________________________________________________________________

NAME

Tcl_Sleep - delay execution for a given number of mil- liseconds

SYNOPSIS

#include <tcl.h> Tcl_Sleep(ms)

ARGUMENTS

int ms (in) Number of mil- liseconds to sleep. _________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION

This procedure delays the calling process by the number of milliseconds given by the ms parameter and returns after that time has elapsed. It is typically used for things like flashing a button, where the delay is short and the applica- tion needn't do anything while it waits. For longer delays where the application needs to respond to other events dur- ing the delay, the procedure Tcl_CreateTimerHandler should be used instead of Tcl_Sleep.
