display time required to complete running script

hi is there any way i can display a countdown time needed to run a script? like load a counter at the beginning of the script with the estimated time and display the counter decrementing till it finishes running the script?

Yes, it is possible. Whether it is accurate or not depends on a number of factors such as is the system heavily loaded or not at the time the script is run.
