If you have a "master" process running -- it strongly depends on how that
process is structured. Is there a main loop? What does it look like? Is it
provided by some toolkit? Maybe that toolkit has an alarm event?
In the end, there isn't much too it: periodically check if "it's time", and
then possibly do something.
I doubt there's a package to do this. The basics are trivial to implement, and
everything depends strongly on the program structure, which could vary
