Question executable to run a command every n seconds and display output


I ran across this a while back but can't remember its name. It was an executable that would run a command every n seconds and display the output on the screen: <executable> <your command>

Does anyone recall this executable?

"watch (1) - execute a program periodically, showing output fullscreen"?
