Tcl Library Procedures
Tcl_Sleep - delay execution for a given number of milliseconds
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
application needn't do anything while it waits. For longer
delays where the application needs to respond to other events
during the delay, the procedure Tcl_CreateTimerHandler
should be used instead of Tcl_Sleep.
