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 argu-
       ments, pause for the amount of time specified by the sum of their values.
