Where is nanosleep?

I use nanosleep under solaris10,like follows:
#include <pthread.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <sys/time.h>
struct to_info{
   void (*to_fn)(void *);
   void *to_arg;
   struct timespec to_wait;
void *timeout_helper(void *arg){
  struct to_info *tip;

when I compile above,it raise following error:

Why? Which header file include nanosleep function? How to find this header file?

See: nanosleep(3RT)high resolution sleep (man pages section 3: Realtime Library Functions)

Hi, I have encountered the following problem on Solaris 10: I have a thread that is asleep on nanosleep (set to 24 hours). Something that happens on another thread, causes the nanosleep to exit, even though the time has not elapsed. The returned value is 0 (so it doesn't look like it... (1 Reply)

Hello, Can anyone, please, guide me on the use of nanosleep. I'm learning threads. I want to introduce a delay (not nested for loops, something more customizable). Nanosleep looked useful (or any other form of customizable and easy-to-use delay). Sleep is too long. :) (2 Replies)
