I was wondering what differences are between

sleep 1 2 3


sleep 6


They seem the same. Thanks.

  • It is not recommended to use vondor specific feaures like this. – schily Jul 29 '18 at 9:44

it's like this so that you can use different time units together

sleep  183965

same effect as

sleep 2d 3h 6m 5s

But this second one is easier for humans to understand as two days, three hours, six minutes, and five seconds.
