<h3>ALARM(2)            Linux Programmer's Manual            ALARM(2)

</h3>       alarm - set an alarm clock for delivery of a signal

</h3>       #include &lt;unistd.h&gt;

       long alarm(long seconds);

</h3>       alarm arranges for a SIGALRM signal to be delivered to the
       process in seconds seconds.

       If seconds is zero, no new alarm is scheduled.

       In any event any previously set alarm is cancelled.

</h3>       alarm returns the number of seconds  remaining  until  any
       previously  scheduled  alarm  was  due to be delivered, or
       zero if there was no previously scheduled alarm.

</h3>       alarm and setitimer share the same  timer;  calls  to  one
       will interfere with use of the other.

       Scheduling delays can, as ever, cause the execution of the
       process to be delayed by an arbitrary amount of time.
