Tcl_Sleep(3)		    Tcl	Library	Procedures		  Tcl_Sleep(3)

______________________________________________________________________________

NAME
       Tcl_Sleep - delay execution for a given number of milliseconds

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<tcl.h>

       Tcl_Sleep(ms)

ARGUMENTS
       int ms (in)	    Number of milliseconds to sleep.
______________________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       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 need not 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.

KEYWORDS
       sleep, time, wait
