WAIT(I)                                                                WAIT(I)

NAME
       wait - await completion of process

SYNOPSIS
       wait

DESCRIPTION
       Wait  until  all processes started with & have completed, and report on
       abnormal terminations.

       Because wait(II) must be executed in  the  parent  process,  the  Shell
       itself executes wait, without creating a new process.

SEE ALSO
       sh(I)

BUGS
       After  executing  wait  you are committed to waiting until termination,
       because interrupts and quits are ignored by  all  processes  concerned.
       The  only  out,  if  the process does not terminate, is to kill it from
       another terminal or to hang up.
