Your program may not be multithreaded, but it is threaded. :)
so threadSleep <ms> will still work, it'll just pause the thread it's
executed in, namely the main thread, which is the one you want. So I
guess the answer to your first question is yes, it can be used. And 2,
no you don't need to learn to use threads, beyond the very basic
calling of threadSleep.
