Synopsis:

repeat (<count>) <command>
repeat <count> <command>

Description:

This command repeatedly executes <command> <count> number of times. If <count> is enclosed in parenthesis, it is evaluated as a mathematical expression (ala ${…}), and if it is not, it is evaluated as regular text.

To very boldly display the time each hour:

    on ^timer "??:00*" {
       repeat 3 echo *** The time is $0!!
    }
