Pause in Turbo C++

Pause in Turbo C++

Pause in Turbo C++

Does anyone know how you can pause your program for a specified number of seconds in C++.  I am using Turbo C++ 4.5 by Borland.  It only has a 16 bit complier?  Can anyone help me?

RE: Pause in Turbo C++

See if you have delay() or sleep(). They should be what you are looking for. Both should be in dos.h.

You could also use time function twice. First, when your program starts and everytime in the empty loop.
The difference between them can be compared to the desire run time, if it equals to it, then continue.

But delay() will do this with no fancies.
