Command Line Timer/Countdown/Stopwatch for Linux
The µTimer project (or commonly written "utimer", but pronounced "micro-timer") is a command-line multifunction timer. It provides a timer (e.g. count from 0 to 4 minutes), a countdown (e.g. count from 10 minutes to 0), and a stopwatch.

Main features:

  • Timer: a timer (counting from 0 to X minutes for example) that shows the currently elapsed time (pretty useful compared to the sleep function!). This can be very useful for everyday uses or even for scripts!
  • A man page with a full description.
  • English and French locales are available.
