    Command:

    timeout

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           timeout [OPTION] NUMBER[SUFFIX] COMMAND [ARG]...
           timeout [OPTION]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Start COMMAND, and kill it if still running after NUMBER seconds.  SUF-
           FIX may be 's' for seconds (the default),  'm'  for  minutes,  'h'  for
           hours or 'd' for days.
    
           Mandatory  arguments  to  long  options are mandatory for short options
           too.
    
           -s, --signal=SIGNAL
    
                  specify the signal to be sent on timeout.  SIGNAL may be a  name
                  like 'HUP' or a number.  See 'kill -l' for a list of signals
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           If  the  command times out, then exit with status 124.  Otherwise, exit
           with the status of COMMAND.  If no signal is specified, send  the  TERM
           signal  upon  timeout.  The TERM signal kills any process that does not
           block or catch that signal.  For other processes, it may  be  necessary
           to use the KILL (9) signal, since this signal cannot be caught.
