================================================================================ shalarm.sh | James Hendrie (firstname.lastname@example.org) 2018-09-14 | README file ================================================================================ Usage: shalarm [OPTION / TIME] Requirements: You'll need a media player of some sort to actually get anything out of this script. I recommend 'mplayer' or something similar. If you want to use the 'FORTUNE' option in the config file, you'll also need the fortune program installed. Installation: You don't really need to install this (it's a shell script), but it makes things a little easier if you do. To do so, as superuser and within the root directory to which you've extracted the archive, type 'make install'. Uninstallation: Similar to the above, except you type 'make uninstall' instead. Description: It's just an alarm clock written as a bash script. Use it however you'd use an alarm. Alarms are typically used to cancel sleep. I'd recommend trying it with the --test option before attempting to use this in any serious capacity, however. NOTE: All times are in 24-hour format. Arguments: -h or --help: Print a help screen -v or --version: Print version and author info -d or --debug: Print out some information about what the script is trying to do. -t or --test: Test out the alarm (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) --snooze N: Enable snooze, set snooze length to N seconds --timeout N: Enable alarm timeout, set timeout limit to N seconds Examples: shalarm 14 Set the alarm for 14:00 (2:00 PM). shalarm 1430 Set the alarm for 14:30 (2:30 PM). shalarm 143030 Set the alarm for 9:00 PM. Just kidding. 14:30:30 (2:30:30 PM). shalarm --snooze 300 --timeout 900 07:30 Set the alarm for 7:30 AM. Additionally, both snooze and alarm timeout are enabled. When you snooze (the first CTRL-C), the alarm will silence itself for 300 seconds (5 minutes). If left ringing for 900 seconds (15 minutes), the alarm will terminate itself. Configuration: Configuration files are stored at /etc/shalarm.cfg and $HOME/.config/shalarm/shalarm.cfg. The second file takes precedence over the first. While a configuration file isn't strictly required, it's highly recommended that you use it since it contains a couple of things not presently supported by command-line arguments. Initially the config file is installed to /etc/shalarm.cfg, but the user-modifiable version is copied to $HOME/.config/shalarm/shalarm.cfg the first time the script is run, including with the --test option. It's probably a good idea to run the test before anything else. If you want to use the 'fortune' program when printing a wakeup message, set the wakeup message to FORTUNE. Obviously, the fortune program needs to be installed. This script is licensed under the FreeBSD License (aka, Simplified BSD License). Check out LICENSE.txt for more info.
