       sleep - delay for a specified amount of time

       sleep NUMBER[SUFFIX]...
       sleep OPTION

       Pause for NUMBER seconds.  SUFFIX may be 's' for seconds (the default),
       'm' for minutes, 'h' for hours or 'd' for days.	Unlike most  implemen‐
       tations	that require NUMBER be an integer, here NUMBER may be an arbi‐
       trary floating point number.  Given two or more	arguments,  pause  for
       the amount of time specified by the sum of their values.
