PAUSE(3) FreeBSD Library Functions Manual PAUSE(3)

pause
stop until signal

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

#include <unistd.h>

pause(void);

Pause is made obsolete by sigsuspend(2).
The pause() function forces a process to pause until a signal is received from either the kill(2) function or an interval timer. (See setitimer(2).) Upon termination of a signal handler started during a pause(), the pause() call will return.

Always returns -1.

The pause() function always returns:
[]
The call was interrupted.

kill(2), select(2), sigsuspend(2)

A pause() syscall appeared in Version 6 AT&T UNIX.
June 4, 1993 FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE
