Scheduler

Purpose

Gives the user the ability to schedule commands to run at a particular time, or repeatedly run at a particular interval. For example, scheduler add [time seconds 30m] "utilities echo [status cpu]" will schedule the command cpu to be sent to the channel in 30 minutes.

Usage

This plugin allows you to schedule commands to execute at a later time.

Commands

add <seconds> <command>
Schedules the command string <command> to run <seconds> seconds in the future. For example, ‘scheduler add [seconds 30m] “echo [cpu]”’ will schedule the command “cpu” to be sent to the channel the schedule add command was given in (with no prefixed nick, a consequence of using echo). Do pay attention to the quotes in that example.
list takes no arguments
Lists the currently scheduled events.
remind <seconds> <text>
Sets a reminder with string <text> to run <seconds> seconds in the future. For example, ‘scheduler remind [seconds 30m] “Hello World”’ will return ‘<nick> Reminder: Hello World’ 30 minutes after being set.
remove <id>
Removes the event scheduled with id <id> from the schedule.
repeat [–delay <delay>] <name> <seconds> <command>
Schedules the command <command> to run every <seconds> seconds, starting now (i.e., the command runs now, and every <seconds> seconds thereafter). <name> is a name by which the command can be unscheduled. If –delay is given, starts in <delay> seconds instead of now.
