All of the timer functions are globals. You do not need to
this module in order to use them.
setTimeout(callback, delay, [arg], [...])#
To schedule execution of a one-time
delay milliseconds. Returns a
timeoutId for possible use with
clearTimeout(). Optionally you can
also pass arguments to the callback.
It is important to note that your callback will probably not be called in exactly
delay milliseconds - Node.js makes no guarantees about the exact timing of when
the callback will fire, nor of the ordering things will fire in. The callback will
be called as close as possible to the time specified.
Prevents a timeout from triggering.
setInterval(callback, delay, [arg], [...])#
To schedule the repeated execution of
intervalId for possible use with
you can also pass arguments to the callback.
Stops a interval from triggering.
