I'm a graduate student trying to write a simple logic simulator (taking into account timing delays).  Does anyone
have a timer class or any advice or info to help w/ the timing in a project like this?  The class must keep track of timing and schedule events to happen at certain times.  I should add, the program will most likely be a DOS program for now.

Well, if you write your programs for Windows by using MFC, then I've got
a solution. The class CWnd (and or course all derivates like CDialog or
CButton) has a method called "SetTimer". Here you can specify that Windows shall send a WM_TIMER message every n milliseconds. You
just have to implement the virtual afx method OnTimer, which is called
every time your window receives this WM_TIMER Message.
Hope this helps.
