NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for pause (netbsd section 3)

PAUSE(3)			   BSD Library Functions Manual 			 PAUSE(3)

NAME
     pause -- stop until signal

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <unistd.h>

     int
     pause(void);

DESCRIPTION
     Pause is made obsolete by sigsuspend(2).

     The pause() function forces a process to pause until a signal is received from either the
     kill(2) function or an interval timer.  (See setitimer(2).)  Upon termination of a signal
     handler started during a pause(), the pause() call will return.

RETURN VALUES
     Always returns -1.

ERRORS
     The pause() function always returns:

     [EINTR]		The call was interrupted.

SEE ALSO
     kill(2), poll(2), select(2), setitimer(2), sigsuspend(2)

STANDARDS
     The pause() function conforms to ISO/IEC 9945-1:1990 (``POSIX.1'').

HISTORY
     A pause() syscall appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.

BSD					   June 4, 1993 				      BSD
