NAME

       install_timer - Installs the Allegro timer interrupt handler.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       int install_timer();

DESCRIPTION

       Installs  the Allegro timer interrupt handler. You must do this before installing any user
       timer routines, and also before displaying a mouse pointer, playing FLI animations or MIDI
       music, and using any of the GUI routines.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns  zero on success, or a negative number on failure (but you may decide not to check
       the return value as this function is very unlikely to fail).
