Running a program for a set amount of time

Hi there,

I want to run a program for a set amount of time say an hour after I 
start it.  After the specified time I would like it to kill itself.

I have looked at fcron for this but it seems that then you have to have 
a start time and a stop time.  I do not want this, I want it to start 
when I type it in the window and then stop after an hour.

Any ideas?
