pause - wait for signal
pause() causes the calling process (or thread) to sleep until a signal
is delivered that either terminates the process or causes the
invocation of a signal-catching function.
pause() only returns when a signal was caught and the signal-catching
function returned. In this case pause() returns -1, and errno is set
EINTR a signal was caught and the signal-catching function returned.
