SLEEP(3) Linux Programmer's Manual SLEEP(3)NAME
sleep - Sleep for the specified number of seconds
unsigned int sleep(unsigned int seconds);
sleep() makes the calling thread sleep until seconds seconds have elapsed or a signal arrives which is not ignored.
Zero if the requested time has elapsed, or the number of seconds left to sleep, if the call was interrupted by a signal handler.
sleep() may be implemented using SIGALRM; mixing calls to alarm(2) and sleep() is a bad idea.
Using longjmp(3) from a signal handler or modifying the handling of SIGALRM while sleeping will cause undefined results.
