NAME

     delay — a constant delay generator

SYNOPSIS

     delay [-b bufsize] [delay]

DESCRIPTION

     delay introduces a constant delay between its standard input and its standard output. The
     data from its stdin will be stored until it has been written to stdout. The required delay
     argument specifies the delay time in millisecond.

     delay supports the following options:

     delay
             delay is the desired delay time, in milliseconds. The following modifiers are
     accepted:
             12s means 12 seconds
             12m means 12 minutes
             12h means 12 hours

     -b bufsize
             buffer size stores the data until it has been written to stdout, in bytes. The
     following modifiers are accepted:
             12k means 12Kb
             12m means 12Mb
             12g means 12Gb

EXAMPLES

     delay the output of command_A to command_B by 5 seconds:
             $ command_A | delay 5s | command_B

     delay the output of command_A to command_B by 5 seconds with 10MB buffer:
             $ command_A | delay -b 10m 5s | command_B
