NAME

       pause - wait for signal

SYNOPSIS

       #include <unistd.h>

       int pause(void);

DESCRIPTION

       The pause() library function causes the invoking process (or thread) to
       sleep until a signal is received that either terminates it or causes it
       to call a signal-catching function.

RETURN VALUE

       The  pause()  function  only  returns  when a signal was caught and the
       signal-catching function returned.  In this case  pause()  returns  -1,
       and errno is set to EINTR.

ERRORS

       EINTR  a signal was caught and the signal-catching function returned.

CONFORMING TO
