If you are happy to recompile luaposix, it is trivial to copy the posix sleep() function and create a similar binding to posix usleep().

Perhaps a nicer solution would be to extend luaposix sleep to accept fractional values and call first posix sleep() for the integer part, then posix usleep() for the fractional part. However, you have to take care of how the new sleep function responds to signals.

There is a library that provides a sleep function in milliseconds? I tried using the posix.sleep() function but it only wait seconds instead miliseconds.
