countdown -- like sleep only displays the amount of time remaining.
countdown [number of seconds] countdown [minutes]m countdown [hours]h countdown [seconds]s countdown [minutes]m[seconds]s countdown [hours]h[minutes]m[seconds]s
--man - displays the man page. --help - displays the help. --version - displays the version.
countdown waits for a certain time to pass, in a similar fashion to the UNIX sleep command, but unlike sleep, it displays the amount of time left to sleep. I always found it frustrating that I've placed an alarm using
sleep $secs ; finish-client and could not tell how much time left, so I wrote countdown for that.
$ countdown 30s # 30 seconds $ countdown 1m # 1 minute $ countdown 100 # 100 seconds $ countdown 2h # 2 hours $ countdown 2m30s # 2 minutes and 30 seconds. $ countdown 1h0m30s # 1 hour, 0 minutes and 30 seconds.
