NAME
       pause - wait for signal

SYNOPSIS
       #include <unistd.h>

       int pause(void);

DESCRIPTION
       The pause library function causes the invoking process (or thread) to sleep until a signal
       is received that either terminates it or causes it to call a signal-catching function.

RETURN VALUE
       The pause function only returns when a signal was caught and the signal-catching  function
       returned. In this case pause returns -1, and errno is set to EINTR.

ERRORS
       EINTR  a signal was caught and the signal-catching function returned.
