nap()

Sleep for a given number of milliseconds

Synopsis:

#include <unix.h>

unsigned int nap( unsigned int ms);

Since:

BlackBerry 10.0.0

Arguments:

ms
The number of milliseconds that you want the process to sleep.

Library:

libc

Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.

Description:

The nap() routine delays the calling process for ms milliseconds. This function is the same as delay() and is similar to napms().

The suspension time may be greater than the requested amount, due to the nature of time measurement (see the Tick, Tock: Understanding the Microkernel's Concept of Time chapter of the BlackBerry 10 OS Programmer's Guide), or due to the scheduling of other, higher-priority threads by the system.

Classification:

Unix
