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.
