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.
