Thanks for the answer.
I already found the Win32.hlp on my Delphi CD.
So all functions are supported by the windows unit?
I'm asking, because I need the Sleep()-funtion of the "Process and
Thread Functions" group for my program.
I do not want to use Delay(), because I would have to include the crt
or wincrt unit then and the output is no longer made to stdout then...
However, Sleep() does not work here for me. Also SleepEx() seems to be
unsupported... Any ideas?
