Sub_title: combination of sleep and at commands

Dear Puppians,

This is Luigi Auriemma's sleepy command. It is a combination of sleep and at and is useful for scripting. I compiled it in 3.01, so it should work in all relatively recent puppies. The source can be obtained from http://aluigi.altervista.org/mytoolz.htm#both. The pet will install in /usr/local/bin. Since it is a command-line utility, it has no menu entry. There is no help, apart from the initial screen:

Sleepy 0.2.4
by Luigi Auriemma
e-mail: aluigi@autistici.org
web:    aluigi.org

Usage: ./sleepy <time_to_wait*> [program] [arg1]...[argN]

* x: ms   s: seconds   m: minutes   h: hours   d: days   w: weeks   u: UTC
  l: loop in wait mode    p: loop in detached mode    b: break if fails

examples: sleepy "2  h 3m 10 s " ping localhost
          sleepy 2h3m10s ping localhost
          sleepy 7390 ping localhost
          sleepy 14:57:62 ping localhost  (local time, current: 12:54:52)
          sleepy u13:57:62 ping localhost (UTC time,   current: 11:54:52)

With kind regards,

You just woke me up. Very Happy

What a charming, completely straightforward, and "to the point" application.

It's really great to see something like this and thank you for compiling and posting it.
