Where does "Crontab -e " file reside??


Hi I'm particularly new to crontab, so my question can be really silly, although I'm using crontab and doing good with it. I'd like to know where the file (called crontab eh?) is stored after doing crontab -e.

Thanks.

/var/spool/cron
Some distros might have a slight variation usually it's in /var/spool

One thing has skipped from my question --- Do cron jobs run on a per-user basis? I.e. if i am logged in as root, only cron jobs belonging to root ar executed, or even all the user's cron jobs??

Cronjobs are scheduled regardless of who is logged in, as long as the crond daemon is running.
