sleep, alarm - delay, ask for delayed note
int sleep(long millisecs)
long alarm(unsigned long millisecs)
Sleep suspends the current process for the number of milliseconds specified by the argu-
ment. The actual suspension time may be a little more or less than the requested time. If
millisecs is 0, the process gives up the CPU if another process is waiting to run, return-
ing immediately if not. Sleep returns -1 if interrupted, 0 otherwise.
Alarm causes an alarm note (see notify(2)) to be sent to the invoking process after the
number of milliseconds given by the argument. Successive calls to alarm reset the alarm
clock. A zero argument clears the alarm. The return value is the amount of time previ-
ously remaining in the alarm clock.
These functions set errstr.
