How do we wait or sleep for a specific amount of time in a thread?

Thank you that's it. my system (linux ubuntu 6.10) didn't find msleep but is good for usleep. Sean, probably I remember sleep from std.c.time and looking for it on thread (should have grep phobos source tree...) thanks, Ant

It's never been there, as far as I know. Sean
