pmpause(1) portable subsecond-capable sleep

Other Alias



$PCP_BINADM_DIR/pmsleep interval


pmpause sleeps indefinitely, until interrupted by SIGKILL.

pmsleep sleeps for the specified interval. The interval argument follows the syntax described in PCPIntro(1) for -t, and in the simplest form may be an unsigned integer or floating point constant (the implied units in this case are seconds).


The exit status is 0 for success, or 1 for a malformed command line. If the underlying nanosleep(2) system call fails, an errno is returned.
