Executive Summary

This package contains some simple time-based tools, and consists of two parts: a library, and an executable. The library should be fairly portable, and provides some simple timer/stopwatch functionality. The executanle is a simple console-based program built on top of the brick package, and as such, will presently only work on POSIX-compatible systems (sorry Windows users).


The library provides its functionalty through the Data.Time.Utils module, and is thoroughlly documented on Hackage.


This package provides the timeutils executable, a console-based program with a rudimentary user interface. It has two modes: stopwatch and countdown. You can toggle between these modes by pressing the <tab> key. The program can be exited with the <esc> key, the q key, or by hitting <ctrl-c>.

Stopwatch Mode

The following is a list of keys and their effects in stopwatch mode:

Key Effect
<space> start/stop stopwatch
l start new lap
r reset stopwatch

Countdown Mode

The following is a list of keys and their effects in countdown mode:

Key Effect
n new countdown
<up>/<down> select countdown
<space> start/stop selected countdown
<del> delete selected countdown
r reset selected countdown
R delete all countdowns
d/D increment/deincrement days in current countdown
h/H increment/deincrement hours in current countdown
m/M increment/deincrement minutes in current countdown
s/S increment/deincrement seconds in current countdown
