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  implemen-
       tations	that require NUMBER be an integer, here	NUMBER may be an arbi-
       trary floating point number.  Given two or more	arguments,  pause  for
       the amount of time specified by the sum of their	values.
