Perhaps. But then the definition of nanosleep()  says  that  it  will
cause  a  delay  of  "at least the time specified in *req", i. e. the
upper bound is not even specified. But the  OP  seemed  to  assume  a
strict timing, so maybe it was yet another function.

Best regards, and a Happy New Year!
