BSD 2.11 - man page for wait (bsd section 1)

WAIT(1) 				       General Commands Manual					      WAIT(1)

NAME
wait - await completion of process
SYNOPSIS
wait
DESCRIPTION
Wait until all processes started with & have completed, and report on abnormal terminations. Because the wait(2) system call must be executed in the parent process, the Shell itself executes wait, with- out creating a new process.
SEE ALSO
sh(1)
BUGS
Not all the processes of a 3- or more-stage pipeline are children of the Shell, and thus can't be waited for. (This bug does not apply to csh(1).) 7th Edition April 29, 1985 WAIT(1)
