Linux timers...

What are the Linux system calls have to be used to write user-space timers?
And please suggest me how to write concurrent timers, i.e, have to create four separate timers and it must run simultaneously.

Can you provide more context? In the case of a shell function, you may want to check out the "sleep" command.
