The Sleep internal function causes the processor to wait the specified number of seconds before continuing execution. It does not tie up the processor while waiting, which is especially important for multi-user systems.
SLEEP now accepts decimal fractions of a second. Resolution accuracy is in milliseconds (up to 3 decimal places). The sleep parameter is still specified in seconds. Some DOS environments have a lower resolution than milliseconds.
