NAME

       pause - wait for signal

SYNOPSIS

       #include <unistd.h>

       int pause(void);

DESCRIPTION

       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.

RETURN VALUE

       pause()  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
