NAME pause - wait for signal
pause() causes the calling process (or thread) to sleep until a signal is delivered that either terminates the process or causes the invocation of a signal-catching function.
pause() returns only when a signal was caught and the signal-catching function returned. In this case
pause() returns -1, and
errno is set to
a signal was caught and the signal-catching function returned.
