I have this so far. The issue is, if
pythoncode.py started before
8*60*60 seconds, then it can still continue running beyond
8*60*60 seconds until it finishes and only then will it stop. I need it to terminate
pythoncode.py at exactly (loosely, +- 1 second is not an issue)
8*60*60 seconds even if it is running.
#! /bin/bash end=$((SECONDS+8*60*60)) while [ $SECONDS -lt $end ]; do python3 /Users/Name/Desktop/pythoncode.py done
I'm a beginner so explaining what to do specifically with this example would be appreciated over just a general answer. Thanks and happy new year.
