How to run program in background

I have a program with a countdown timer. Problem is when you switch to other programs, the timer will stop until you switchback to the timer program. Is there any allegro function that will solve my problem? Thanks!

Use native timers?

Both worked. I used timer.h from ANSI C. I'll just use the allegro function. Thank you very much!
