NAME

       sleep - delay for a specified amount of time

SYNOPSIS

       sleep NUMBER[SUFFIX]...
       sleep OPTION

DESCRIPTION

       Pause for NUMBER seconds.  SUFFIX may be ‘s’ for seconds (the default),
       ‘m’  for  minutes,  ‘h’  for  hours  or  ‘d’  for  days.   Unlike  most
       implementations  that  require NUMBER be an integer, here NUMBER may be
       an arbitrary floating point number.  Given two or more arguments, pause
       for the amount of time specified by the sum of their values.
