Re: possibility to start a skript as a cron-job without accessing the crontable

in reply to possibility to start a skript as a cron-job without accessing the crontable

Some time ago, I pointed out an emulation of cron running in Perl. If you can run perl-programs under your account (which I assume you can), you might give this a go. You can find it under www.megadodo.demon.co.uk/perl/. The comments in the code say it's for NT, but I assume it shouldn't be difficult - if anything has to be changed at all - to get it to run on linux.

Hope that helps,
BrotherAde

    but as far as i understand this thing from megadodo it will run as a service under nt... how could i emulate such on a linux box?

      The way I saw it, it can run as a service on an NT-box. I assume (haven't tested) that you can run it as a background process on linux by appending a & to the command.

      Keep me posted!
