Hello, I was looking up on "sleep". I wanted to make a delayed message, but when I use sleep, it says theres an error. Please help me.
#include <string>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    cout << "HELLO ";
    sleep(2000);
    cout << "WORLD\n\n";
    
    system("pause");
    return 0;
}

Could you be more specific? Is it a compiler error? Is it a runtime error? What does the error say?

Sleep() is a Win32 API function. Thus, all you gotta do is include windows.h too like this...

#include <windows.h>

Remember that the Windows version has a capital S ;)

Sleep is a non-standard Windows-only function. sleep is a bit more portable. sleep is in <unistd.h>.
