From time to time I've wanted to set an alarm. But I noticed we didn't have a simple function set for doing so. Such as attaching it to a signal.
I imagine it would be useful to have such a function in the kernal of Exec. But even in the updated OS4 Exec I see none. Whatever is used by Exec for the underlying timer would be hidden away with just functions to set up an alarm and attach to a signal or return a signal.
Sure timer.device can be used but it's over complicated when one just wants a simple alarm. Each timer request needs a few things allocated, attached and opened just for a simple timer. It would be good to have functions to do this and simplify the process.
