What is a good way of saying "run this after 15 minutes" on a shell?
You are searching for
usr@srv % at now + 15 min at> YOUR COMMAND HERE
You can define multiple commands that should be executed in 15 min; separate them with a return.
Confirm all commands with
I use a short script I keep in my path, called after, containing
at now + "$@"
This way it's very easy to, for example, type:
after 15 min
then any commands and Ctrl-D, or
echo COMMANDS | after 15 min
which does the same.
