Simple timer script for command-line PHP

By admin | November 12, 2008

Are you looking for a simple timer script written in command-line PHP? If so, here is one pre-written (released under the GPL v2 or later):

<?php
define("endl","\n");
// Timer script
if($argv[1] == "") {
 	echo "Usage: ".$argv[0]." minutes".endl;
 	die();
}
$dtime = strtotime("+".$argv[1]." minute");

while(true) {
 	echo "Enter to check time: ";
 	$tt = fgets(STDIN);
 	$i = date("i",$dtime-time());
 	$s = date("s",$dtime-time());
 	echo "$i minutes, $s seconds".endl;
}
?>

Usage: When launching use first parameter as number of minutes to count (0-59 min). Press enter to check the time.
