Hey hoe.. How do I allow functions to run paralell in c++? For example if I whant a timer to run besides the ongoing functions.. Is it possible in a simple i/o console program? does the system necessarily need to halt before each new step?

I am not very sure that I understand your question correctly, but what you describe is called "multithreading". It is possible to do that in console programs (I''m talking about Windows here).

"does the system necessarily need to halt before each new step?"
I don''t know what you mean by that. When having more than a thread, certain precautions have to be taken.

Could you elaborate your question a little bit?
