glutTimerFunc(3GLUT)                 GLUT                 glutTimerFunc(3GLUT)



NAME
       glutTimerFunc - registers a timer callback to be triggered in a
       specified number of milliseconds.

SYNTAX
       void glutTimerFunc(unsigned int msecs,
                    void (*func)(int value), value);

ARGUMENTS
       msecs     Number of milliseconds to pass before calling the callback.

       func      The timer callback function.

       value     Integer value to pass to the timer callback.

DESCRIPTION
       glutTimerFunc registers the timer callback func to be triggered in at
       least msecs milliseconds. The value parameter to the timer callback
       will be the value of the value parameter to glutTimerFunc. Multiple
       timer callbacks at same or differing times may be registered
       simultaneously.

       The number of milliseconds is a lower bound on the time before the
       callback is generated. GLUT attempts to deliver the timer callback as
       soon as possible after the expiration of the callback's time interval.

       There is no support for canceling a registered callback. Instead,
       ignore a callback based on its value parameter when it is triggered.
