TIMEOUT(1)                       User Commands                      TIMEOUT(1)



NAME
       timeout - run a command with a time limit

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

DESCRIPTION
       Start COMMAND, and kill it if still running after NUMBER seconds.  SUFFIX 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 can-
       not be caught.
