I computed a clock on a file exerciceIV_2.C with the gedit command of unix, And, by a night of september, I decided to use sleep 1000 in order to stop the clock.

I wasn't able to use my device for 1000 seconds! hopefully I called a friend who told me to use CTRL+C. How should we do in order to still stop the clock while having control?

  • @wurtel Yes, I know, If you had read the comments, you would know that I would have deleted it! and beginner or not it's still a question! – ThePassenger Sep 30 '15 at 23:18

while syntax is

while ( cond ) expr ;

you cannot add a ! before (

On a side note, this question would have better fit stackoverflow.
