Subject: Re: DEV timer? GetTicks?
From: Minuk Choi (Choi.Minuk_at_verizon.net)
Date: 2003-09-23


Hey gang, I have the following lines

int t = current_tick;

while ((current_tick-t)<3600)
    something...

it's in a file in the plugin directory. When I try to compile, I get the
message that current_tick is an undefined reference. Am I forgetting
something?
