This is the command bup-tick that can be run in the OnWorks free hosting provider using one of our multiple free online workstations such as Ubuntu Online, Fedora Online, Windows online emulator or MAC OS online emulator
bup-tick - wait for up to one second
bup tick waits until time(2) returns a different value than it originally did. Since
time() has a granularity of one second, this can cause a delay of up to one second.
This program is useful for writing tests that need to ensure a file date will be seen as
modified. It is slightly better than sleep(1) since it sometimes waits for less than one
