Sleep like program that counts down the time
Delay is a program that counts down the number of seconds specified on its command line. In this way, it's sort of like the standard sleep(1) command, except for the fact that it provides feedback of the time remaining. It allows for short, long, and customized messages for the display of the time remaining. It also attempts to compensate for the time used in printing the message, so there should be no inaccuracy proportional to the amount of time to be delayed, above and beyond the time it takes for the program to start up and shut down.
