Magic VLSI Layout Tool Version 7.3 *


Sleep for a number of seconds


sleep seconds

where seconds is the number of seconds to sleep.


The sleep command implements the UNIX system sleep() call to suspend the process for a number of seconds. This function is only particularly useful for demonstration purposes. In the Tcl version of magic, it is effectively superceded by the Tcl after command.

Implementation Notes:

sleep is implemented as a built-in command in magic.
