Crontab Template

t

I just found my good old crontab template, which provides some nice formatting and documentation features. Just for our convenience, I paste it in here.

# .---------------- minute (0 - 59)
# |  .------------- hour (0 - 23)
# |  |  .---------- day of month (1 - 31)
# |  |  |  .------- month (1 - 12) OR jan,feb,mar,apr ...
# |  |  |  |  .---- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday=0 or 7)  OR sun,mon,tue,wed,thu,fri,sat
# |  |  |  |  |
# *  *  *  *  *  command to be executed
# *  *  *  *  *  command --arg1 --arg2 file1 file2 2>&1

You don’t need to care about the artificial line break too much - it’s only in the html display, simply select above text and copy it to the start of your crontab file.

Enjoy and relax, iss!
