Watchline runs a command at an interval (similar to watch; without clearing the screen)

Precise mode

To observe the behavior, compare the execution of date --iso-8601=ns | cut -d, -f2 | cut -d+ -f1 with and without precise mode:

# Continuous clock skew
$ watchline 'date --iso-8601=ns | cut -d, -f2 | cut -d+ -f1'

# Maintain the same interval on average
$ watchline -p 'date --iso-8601=ns | cut -d, -f2 | cut -d+ -f1'
