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 In the Tcl version of magic, it is effectively superceded by the Tcl after command.
sleep is implemented as a built-in command in magic.
