I need to run bittorrent-curses
between 2am - 8am
only for free unlimited download, except 2-8am bandwidth is too costly.
So, could you please advise me on how to run Interative programs
" or "vi
" or "pico
" etc., which requires user interaction
like typing etc.,
The problem with at
(what I found upto now with googling) is that it won't run jobs interactively (really?) and only run task in backgound. I need to run the task interactively.
I use adsl-start
to start and stop internet connection.
To run vi
After 1 minute Nothing shows up
echo vi | at now + 1 min
I want to run these commands adsl-start runs fine but bittorrent-curses won't run
same with crontab -e
echo /usr/sbin/adsl-start| at 0200
echo /usr/bin/bittorrent-curses ~/mytorrent.torrent| at 0201
#Run daily -> Start Internet connection at 2:00 AM
0 2 * * * /usr/sbin/adsl-start
#Run daily -> start bittorrent curses interface to download mytorrent.torrent file
1 2 * * * /usr/bin/bittorrent-curses ~/mytorrent.torrent
#Run daily -> Stop Internet connection at 8:00 AM
0 8 * * * /usr/sbin/adsl-stop
The adsl-start & adsl-stop
works fine at 2:00am and 8:00am, but bittorrent-curses won't show up not even in ps -aux | grep bittorrent-curses
I need to run interactive programs at a specific time, how could I do that? is there any way?
