    Update screen once per second

    Hi everyone!

    I need to show a countdown clock on canvas for my application, so my target is to build an application which behaves as usual, but updates the screen at least once per second even if the user is inactive. Is there any "standard" way to do that?

    e32 module

    e32.ao_sleep(1) #sleeps one second

    make a while loop and thats it

    Or you can use a timer (e32.Ao_timer) which, unlike e32.ao_sleep, doesn't block other operations.
