There is timeoutAdd:


used like so:
timeoutAdd action 1000

where action is an action with type IO Bool and the number is the time
to wait in milliseconds, (ie 1000 is 1 second). If the action returns
True then it will get called again at the next timeout, otherwise it
will not be called again.

I'm forwarding this to the Haskell Cafe mailing list where someone might
be able to give you a pointer.
