Python Sleep milliseconds

To sleep for a specified number of milliseconds in Python, you can convert the milliseconds to seconds by dividing by “1000” and passing that value to the “time.sleep()” function.


import time

# Sleep for 500 milliseconds
sleep_duration_ms = 500
sleep_duration_s = sleep_duration_ms / 1000

print("Start sleeping for 500 milliseconds...")


print("Finished sleeping.")


Start sleeping for 500 milliseconds...
Finished sleeping.

In this code, we wanted to sleep for 500 milliseconds, so we first converted it to seconds by dividing it by 1000 (0.5 seconds).

Then, we passed the resulting value (0.5) to the time.sleep() function, which pauses the script execution for 0.5 seconds.
