wait for x seconds type command


is there a "wait for xx seconds" type command within *nix that I can use to delay the execution of one command after another. IOW...

echo Starting server...
/usr/local/bin/server

"WAIT FOR 10 SECONDS"

echo Starting Client
/usr/local/bin/Client

I am having execution issues because a server cannot initialize fast enough for the client to connect properly

TIA,
Sub

There's sleep(1). See "man sleep".
