2. "in" in the future always means "
after some time from now on" not "within". But I can barely see "within" but "in". Do native speakers also mean "less then" some specific time as well as "after" when they say "in (some time)"? I mean if you say "in 5 minutes", technically it's "
5 minutes after", but does it also imply "less than or after(<=5) minutes"?
