Hello, How do I get miliseconds in a Linux OS using only C. I want a program to block 0.5 sec then it will listen for an user input. Thanks

1) ANSI clock(): CPU time used so far (divide by frequency = CLOCKS_PER_SEC)
2) POSIX.1 sleep(): blocks the program x seconds
3) BSD gettimeofday: second/microsecond timer
4) SDL SDL_GetTicks: millisecond counter
