SubjectRe: putting a user program to sleep till interrupted
Hello,

A good explanation is found in:
http://www.linuxdoc.org/LDP/lki/lki-2.html#ss2.5

and also in Chapter 5, 'Linux Device Drivers' from Alessandro Rubini & Jonathan Corbet
(you find an electronic version of the book in http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/linuxdrive2/)

regards
Martin
