 +======Synopsis:​======
 +__sleep__ <​seconds>​
 +
 +======Description:​======
 +__SLEEP__ performs a blocking sleep for <​second>​ seconds. ​ During the
 +sleep, the client is totaly inert and peforms no activity of any kind.
 +It does not accept user input, it does not look for data from the server,
 +it does not process your DCC's, it does absolutely nothing. ​ When __SLEEP__
 +returns, everything is exactly as it was before the sleep.
 +
 +Please remember that data from the server is not processed during a 
 +__SLEEP__ so you don't want to use that if you are waiting for a server
 +command to reply. ​ Use [[WAIT]] for that.  ​
 +
 +Up through and including EPIC4-1.1.1,​ <​seconds>​ has to be a whole integer.
 +EPIC4-1.1.2 and later can support <​seconds>​ with subsecond precision.
 +
 +======History:​======
 +The __SLEEP__ command already existed in ircII2.1.5g.
 +Support for sub-second resolution first appeared in EPIC4-1.1.2.
