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.
