1.62 Delay

Defined in namespace Smalltalk
Superclass: Object
Category: Kernel-Processes

I am the ultimate agent for frustration in the world. I cause things to wait (sometimes much more than is appropriate, but it is those losing operating systems’ fault). When a process sends one of my instances a wait message, that process goes to sleep for the interval specified when the instance was created.
