sleep

format: #sleep {seconds};other_commands

Description: replace the hack of using #system sleep seconds
to generate pauses. The advantages over #system sleep are:
   1) seconds are nolonger limited by interger
   2) the tintin will not hang for SECONDS
   3) #purge command make it more flexible to use.
NOTE: #10 {#10 practice;#sleep 3} won't work.
         if one wants to do so, can: #alias aa {#10 practice;#sleep 3;aa},
         ofcoz in real case shall add variable control for jump out of the loop.
