Is there anyway to add a millisecond pause in Onlinegdb

I know there is a way to do it with windows exclusive libraries but I know Onlinegdb won't allow for use of windows exclusive libraries. I prefer C++ but any of the available languages I can do this in I would like to know.

In C++ it does not provide a pause function of its own. You have to use windows to provide the functionality. However, in python you can do time.sleep(3) (Three Seconds) I’m not sure if that is available in online GDB though, since I don’t use python.

#include <chrono>

int main() {
    using namespace std::this_thread;     // sleep_for, sleep_until
    using namespace std::chrono_literals; // ns, us, ms, s, h, etc.
    using std::chrono::system_clock;

    std::cout << "Sleeping for 5 s" << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Sleeping for 10 ns" << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Sleeping for 1 ms" << std::endl;
    sleep_until(system_clock::now() + 1ms);
    std::cout << "All done." << std::endl;
