NAME
       pause - wait for signal

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

       int pause(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The pause() library function causes the invoking process (or thread) to
       sleep until a signal is received that either terminates it or causes it
       to call a signal-catching function.

RETURN VALUE
       The pause() function only returns when a signal was caught and the sig-
       nal-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
       SVr4, 4.3BSD, POSIX.1-2001.
