Description Alan Cox 2000-01-18 16:44:16 UTC
First test CD:

       nanosleep delays the execution of the program for at least
       the  time specified in *req.  The function can return ear<AD>
       lier if a signal has been delivered  to  the  process.  In
       this  case, it returns -1, sets errno to EINTR, and writes

Note the <AD> (shows up inverse video)
