I'm trying to make a program whitch sleeps n seconds, with n the commandline-input:
//////////////////
#include <windows.h>
#include <iostream>

using std::cout;
using std::endl;

int main(int argc,int *argv)
{
  if (argc != 2)
  {
    cout << "Usage : Sleep n\nwith n: number of seconds\n" << endl ;
    exit(-1);
  }
 
  cout << argv[1]*1000 <<endl ;

Sleep(argv[1]*1000);

  return 0;
}

////////////////////
