What operating system are you working in? Most OS's have a system call called sleep. In Windows, it is (#include <windows.h>):

void Sleep(int ms)

which sleeps for ms milliseconds. In Unix, the C standard runtime library (#include <unistd.h>) has:

unsigned int sleep (unsigned int seconds)

Do you have the C runtime libraries? What compiler are you using? You can't get a fatal error just from including a standard library (unless you perhaps don't have the GNU libraries in the first place).
