15.8 Process Waiting

Process Waiting means that a process suspends its own execution until some condition is true. The generic Process Wait functions take a wait-function argument, which is arbitrary though somewhat restricted Lisp code. A process resumes running when the wait-function returns true. The specific Process Wait functions wait for a specific condition.
