[SDL] Increment after time

There is a function called SDL_GetTicks() which returns a number of
milliseconds that sdl has been running (I think that's what it measures but
am not 100% sure).
You can call that function to get the number of milliseconds of when your
program starts up and then you can check in your game loop to see if
SDL_GetTicks() is 5000 greater than your first measurement (5000 miliseconds
= 5 seconds), if it is then you can increment your variable or whatever you
want to do after 5 seconds.

Subject: [SDL] Increment after time
My game has lots of bugs at the moment :(
The main problem I have right now is that I want the variable area,
initialized to 0 globally, to be incremented after five seconds.
Any idea how I would do this?
