Unix Version 7 - man page for wait (v7 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 termina-
       tions.

       Because the wait(2) system call must be executed in the parent process, the  Shell  itself
       executes wait, without 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.
