    executing function at a later time

    I'm making a game sort of thing in PHP and I was wondering if there was a way in PHP that I can pause the execution of a function after x seconds. I don't want the whole script to stop working though, so for example
    // function 1

    (pauses for 10 seconds) {
    // function 2
    }

    // function 3

    i want the script to execute like normal, but pause for 10 seconds before executing function 2, so it would execute function 1 and function 3 then 10 seconds later, execute function 2

    this is exactly like the fork() statement found in MOO programming

    go here to get a clearer definition.

    is there a way to do this in PHP?
