_________________________________________________________________

DESCRIPTION
       This  procedure	delays	the calling process by the number of milliseconds given by the ms
       parameter and returns after that time has elapsed.  It is typically used for  things  like
       flashing a button, where the delay is short and the application need not do anything while
       it waits.  For longer delays where the application needs to respond to other events during
       the delay, the procedure Tcl_CreateTimerHandler should be used instead of Tcl_Sleep.

KEYWORDS
       sleep, time, wait
