/timers [off]
/timer[n|name] [off]
/timer[n|name] [-cdehimopr] [time] <repetitions> <interval> <code>

Creates a timer that runs <code> at an interval.

If you are connected to server when the timer is started, it defaults to being a online timer, otherwise it will be a offline timer.

A offline timer will continue to run even if the server is disconnected, while a online timer will stop the timer when disconnected.

$identifiers and %vars in the <code> are evaluated at the creation time of the timer, to evaluate during the timer tick, the $ and % must be combined like this $ $+ identifier, % $+ varname.
