The Final Countdown


A lot of times I end up starting a command in one terminal and then want to do something after that command finishes in another window. I’ve been using the bash sleep command to do this but recently I’ve wanted to know how long was left in the countdown. So I made a simple C++ program to do show the time left and added some little things like colors and a progress bar just for fun.


All the code can be found on my github and easily built on both Linux and OS X with a simple make command.
