suspend process until signal
pause suspends the calling process until it receives a signal of any type.
The signal must be one that is not currently set to be ignored.
If the signal causes termination of the process, pause
does not return.
If the signal is
by the calling process and control is returned from
the signal-catching function
the calling process
resumes execution from the point of suspension

the calling process resumes from the point of suspension
with errno set to:
A signal was caught by the calling process.
