PCODO was designed to be an universal count-up or count-down timer. Time elements are configurable and can also be displayed in decimal. The number of decimal places can be set.

Different sizes are possible, up to huge full screen digits. The Background and labeling can be done freely with any graphical software.

After a timer ran down, the following actions can be configured:

- Nothing

- Display a message

- Play an audio file

- Start a program

The timer can automatically restart after running down, so cyclic procedures can be realized. The timer is always oriented at the current time, so it "runs" even if the PC is switched off. Very long distances can be timed! Time can be synchronized via Internet.
