Tcl_Sleep(3) Tcl Library Procedures Tcl_Sleep(3)
Tcl_Sleep - delay execution for a given number of mil-
int ms (in) Number of milliseconds to sleep.
This procedure delays the calling process by the number of
milliseconds given by the ms parameter and returns after
that time has elapsed. It is typically used for things like
flashing a button, where the delay is short and the applica-
tion need not do anything while it waits. For longer delays
where the application needs to respond to other events dur-
ing the delay, the procedure Tcl_CreateTimerHandler should
be used instead of Tcl_Sleep.
