/** Class for implementing an "adaptive" delay.
    This class will cause the the caller to, on average, delay
    the specified number of milliseconds between calls. This can
    be used to simulate hardware timing for a sofwtare only device

/** Class for implementing a "delay line" channel.
    This indirect channel can be placed in a channel I/O chain to limit the
    speed of I/O. This can be useful if blocking is not available and buffers
    could be overwritten if the I/O occurs at full speed.

    There are two modes of operation. In stream more, data can be read/written
    no faster than a fixed time for a fixed number of bytes. So, for example,
    you can say than 320 bytes must take 20 milliseconds, and thus if the
    application writes 640 byets it will delay 40 milliseconds before the next

    In frame mode, the rate limiting applies to individual read or write
    operations. So you can say that each read takes 30 milliseconds even if
    on 4 bytes is read, and the same time if 24 bytes are read.

    enum Mode {

    /** Create a new delay channel with the specified delays. A value of zero
        for the numBytes parameter indicates that the delay is in frame mode.

        The maximum skip time is the number of milliseconds that the delay
        may "catch up" by using zero delays. This is caused by the Read() or
        Write() not being called for a time by external factors.

       of bytes read.

       The GetErrorCode() function should be consulted after Read() returns
       FALSE to determine what caused the failure.

       TRUE indicates that at least one character was read from the channel.
