Hi,

I have a list of users and I want to display each one ONE SECOND after the last.

So I use the sleep() function, and what happend is, that it sleep the total amount of all records and then displays all of them of a sudden.

Ej. If I have 20 users, the sistem last 20 seconds and show all of them suddenly, no one by one.

regards
cayetano

PHP doesn't send anything to the browser until the script has completed its execution. You'd have to use a browser-side script like Javascript to do what you want.

or you can flush [php.net] the information upon each iteration after the sleep().

Thank you coopster, the flush() worked fine.
