break_interval

This simple program plays a jingle at a specified interval in minutes. It is meant to be used as a way to notify the user to take a break when the interval jingle plays.

# For usage:
> ./break_interval --help
./program [minutes] [file_to_play_on_interval] [player_program] [player_args...]
  minutes defaults to 5, file defaults to internal file, program defaults to "/usr/bin/mpv".
Note that this program uses execl/execv, so if a program is specified, it must be the full path to the program.

Running the program with no args will default to playing a jingle every 5 minutes.

If [player_program] is specified (with full path) like with /usr/bin/ffplay, then the command executed will look like:

/usr/bin/ffplay <file_to_play>

If [player_args...] is specified like with --flag and --another-flag, then the command executed will look like:

/usr/bin/ffplay --flag --another-flag <file_to_play>

It may be recommended to use a command like:

./break_interval 5 /my/music/file.mp3 /usr/bin/ffplay -nodisp

Which will execute (every 5 minutes):

/usr/bin/ffplay -nodisp /my/music/file.mp3

To play the internal file instead of a specified one, use the parameter "INTERNAL_FILE" for the filename and break_interval will play the internal file.

./break_interval 5 INTERNAL_FILE /usr/bin/ffplay -nodisp
