I'm trying to use the Sleep() function in c++, but can't seem to find the correct header file. Anybody know what its called? Thanks ahead of time

sleep() is in <unistd.h>, but might also be found in <cstdlib>, possibly renamed _sleep() on Win32 platforms.

Sleep() is likely to be in <windows.h>

Actually, Sleep is declared in the WinBase header, though you should include the Windows header.

I looked in K & R and there was no mention of the sleep function being in stdlib.h.


AFAIK, sleep() is POSIX, though not ISO. Its proper resting place is unistd.h, but Windows platform, although they claim some level of POSIX compliance, do not have that header.
