* elapsed. The callback function is passed the current timer interval
* and returns the next timer interval. If the returned value is the
* same as the one passed in, the periodic alarm continues, otherwise a
* new alarm is scheduled. If the callback returns 0, the periodic alarm
* is cancelled.
* To cancel a currently running timer, call SDL_SetTimer(0, NULL);
* The timer callback function may run in a different thread than your
* main code, and so shouldn't call any functions from within itself.
* The maximum resolution of this timer is 10 ms, which means that if
* you request a 16 ms timer, your callback will run approximately 20 ms
* later on an unloaded system. If you wanted to set a flag signaling
* a frame update at 30 frames per second (every 33 ms), you might set a
* timer for 30 ms:
* SDL_SetTimer((33/10)*10, flag_update);
* If you use this function, you need to pass SDL_INIT_TIMER to SDL_Init().
* Under UNIX, you should not use raise or use SIGALRM and this function
* in the same program, as it is implemented using setitimer(). You also
* should not use this function in multi-threaded applications as signals
* to multi-threaded apps have undefined behavior in some implementations.
