It's cron capable to do this?
Hello everybody!
I want to know if there is the possibillity to run two perl scripts in cron but ......

Let's say we have and scripts.

I want to run every 5 minutes and to run imediately after finished his execution!

It is possible or not ?

Yes. First create a shell script like this:


Then set up cron to run that script every five minutes (you may need to set up another crontab entry for cron.5minutely; see the crontab manpage for more). Alternatively, look at using at with atd which has better support for flexible runtimes.
