/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.

-c - TODO
-d - TODO
-e - Execute the code associated with a timer.
-h - Create a high-resolution timer.
-i - Dynamically associates itself with the active connection.
-m - Treat the interval parameter as milliseconds instead of seconds.

-p - Pause a timer.
-r - Resume a timer.
