In C programs you cannot be sure of delay, cause it depends on compiler how it optimize the loops as soon as you make changes in the options the delay changes.
you will have to use Timers for making exact delays….. it does not matters whether u need delays of ms , us or even seconds…
below is a function of 1 second using timers…..
// the idea is to make a 50ms delay and run it 20 times as 20x50ms= 1000ms= 1sec
delay_1s() // timer of 1 sec
TR0=1; // start timer.
while(TF0==0); // run until TF turns to 1
TR0=0; // stop timer
TF0=0; // reset the flag
