WAIT(1)                                                   WAIT(1)

     NAME
          wait - await completion of process

     SYNOPSIS
          wait

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

          Because the wait(2) system call must be executed in the par-
          ent process, the Shell itself executes wait, without creat-
          ing a new process.

     SEE ALSO
          sh(1)

     BUGS
          Not all the processes of a 3- or more-stage pipeline are
          children of the Shell, and thus can't be waited for.
