bup-tick - wait for up to one second
bup tick waits until
time(2) returns a different value
than it originally did. Since time() has a granularity of
one second, this can cause a delay of up to one second.
This program is useful for writing tests that need to
ensure a file date will be seen as modified. It is
slightly better than
sleep(1) since it sometimes waits
for less than one second.
