From man 5 crontab:
The time and date fields are:

field allowed values
----- --------------
minute 0-59
hour 0-23
day of month 1-31
month 1-12 (or names, see below)
day of week 0-7 (0 or 7 is Sun, or use names)

A field may be an asterisk (*), which always stands for "first-last".

so at 9-18:10 on the 25,28,29,30,and 31st of January, Sunday through Saturday run $PATH/command

Dave
