extimer(3alleg4)                 Allegro manual                 extimer(3alleg4)



NAME
       extimer - Using the timer (delays and interrupts). Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       Example extimer

DESCRIPTION
       This program demonstrates how to use the timer routines.  These can be a
       bit of a pain, because you have to be sure you lock all the memory that
       is used inside your interrupt handlers.  The first part of the example
       shows a basic use of timing using the blocking function rest(). The
       second part shows how to use three timers with different frequencies in a
       non blocking way.
