Hey Alan! :-D
You mean like this:

// Main game loop
while (true)
	// Get the current time
	float newTime = (float) SDL_GetTicks();

	float deltaTime = newTime - currentTime;
	currentTime = newTime;

	accumulator += deltaTime;

	while (accumulator >= dt)
		t += dt;
		accumulator -= dt;



That's what I have...  Thanks!
