NAME
       fli_timer - Global variable for timing FLI playback. Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       extern volatile int fli_timer;

DESCRIPTION
       Global variable for timing FLI playback. When you open an FLI file, a
       timer interrupt is installed which increments this variable every time a
       new frame should be displayed. Calling next_fli_frame() decrements it, so
       you can test it and know that it is time to display a new frame if it is
       greater than zero. Example:

          while (next_fli_frame(0) == FLI_OK) {
             /* Do stuff, like play audio stream
                or check keys to skip animation. */
             /* Rest some time until next frame... */
             while (fli_timer <= 0)
                rest(0);
          }
