NAME

SYNOPSIS

       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  er-
       rno is set to EINTR.

ERRORS
       EINTR  a	signal was caught and the signal-catching function returned.
