sleep pauses for an amount of time specified by the sum of the values of the command line arguments. Synopsis:
Each argument is a number followed by an optional unit; the default is seconds. The units are:
Historical implementations of sleep have required that number be an integer, and only accepted a single argument without a suffix. However, GNU sleep accepts arbitrary floating point numbers. See Floating point.
The only options are --help and --version. See Common options.
Due to shell aliases and built-in sleep functions, using an
unadorned sleep interactively or in a script may get you
different functionality than that described here. Invoke it via
env sleep ...) to avoid interference
from the shell.
An exit status of zero indicates success, and a nonzero value indicates failure.
