LXer: Automating tasks with crontab

Published at LXer:

Let cron handle your repetitive tasks - an introduction to crontab. A crontab is a simple text file that holds a list of commands that are to be run at specified times. These commands, and their related run times, are controlled by the cron daemon and are executed in the system's background. More information can be found by viewing the crontab man page. We will run through a simple crontab example later.
