Sleep for the specified number of seconds
#include <unistd.h> unsigned int sleep(unsigned int seconds);
sleep() makes the calling thread sleep until seconds seconds have elapsed or a signal arrives which is not ignored.
Zero if the requested time has elapsed, or the number of seconds left to sleep, if the call was interrupted by a signal handler.
