What is the header file needed for the sleep function?

FazFaz Posts: 75Member
I'm only assuming that the sleep function is used to pause the program for x milliseconds. So something simple like:

cout << "3";
sleep(1000);
clrscr();
cout << "2";
sleep(1000);
clrscr();
cout << "1";
sleep(1000);
clrscr();
cout << "GO!!";

Is what I want to do. (It really should be clear what I'm trying to do!! But if not, I want a delay of a second exactly.)

Thanks for any help. (I just need to know what the header file is for it to compile)

    :

    If your OS is Windows, then the Sleep() function prototype is in <windows.h>. If you are using UNIX, I know there are functions called sleep() and usleep() but I cannot remember the header file.
