SLEEP (II)                   9/4/72                    SLEEP (II)

NAME            sleep -- stop execution for interval

SYNOPSIS        (seconds in r0)

                sys sleep  / sleep = 35.; not in assembler

DESCRIPTION     The current process is suspended from execution

                for the number of seconds specified by the con-

                tents of register 0.

SEE ALSO        --


BUGS            Due to the implementation, the sleep interval is

                only accurate to 256 60ths of a second (4.26

                sec).  Even then, the process is placed on a low

                priority queue and must be scheduled.
