Why do most people use this:

Code:
#include <amxmodx> new g_iCountDown public plugin_init() {     set_task( 60.0, "task_countdown", _, _, "b") } public task_countdown() {     g_iCountDown = 61         set_task( 1.0, "countdown", _, _, "a", g_iCountDown) } public countdown() {     g_iCountDown--     client_print( 0, print_chat, "%d", g_iCountDown) }

While they can just do this

Code:
#include <amxmodx> new g_iCountDown public plugin_init() {     set_task( 60.0, "task_countdown", _, _, "b") } public task_countdown() {     g_iCountDown = 61         while( g_iCountDown != 0 )     {         g_iCountDown--         client_print( 0, print_chat, "%d", g_iCountDown)     } }

Your first code will start the 60-0 countdown after 60 seconds and there will be a 1 second delay between each print.

Your second code will also start the countdown after 60 seconds, except there will not be a 1 second delay between each print--it will be instantaneous.

So it is ok to use either based on what the purpose is.
