Im using PTC(www.gaffer.org/ptc)for my graphic routines. As ptc doesnt have any timing functions, im searching for a timing library(for use with vc5). What im trying to do is a pixelbounce effect, kinda hard without timing, i think :)

1. Check time.h - for example use "time" to get the current time

    time_t ltime;
    time( &ltime );
    printf( "Time in seconds since UTC 1/1/70:\t%ld\n", ltime );
    printf( "UNIX time and date:\t\t\t%s", ctime( &ltime ) );

2. If you are only using interval timing.  GetTickCount is a handy function to get the number of ticks since Windows started
