Manpage of SLEEP
SLEEPSection: Linux Programmer's Manual (3)
NAMEsleep - sleep for a specified number of seconds
#include <unistd.h>unsigned int sleep(unsigned int seconds);
DESCRIPTIONsleep() causes the calling thread to sleep either until the number of real-time seconds specified in secondshave elapsed or until a signal arrives which is not ignored.
RETURN VALUEZero if the requested time has elapsed, or the number of seconds left to sleep, if the call was interrupted by a signal handler.
ATTRIBUTESFor an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).

CONFORMING TOPOSIX.1-2001, POSIX.1-2008.
NOTESOn Linux, sleep() is implemented via nanosleep(2). See the nanosleep(2) man page for a discussion of the clock used.
Portability notesOn some systems, sleep() may be implemented using alarm(2) and SIGALRM(POSIX.1 permits this); mixing calls to alarm(2) and sleep() is a bad idea.
Using longjmp(3) from a signal handler or modifying the handling of SIGALRMwhile sleeping will cause undefined results.
