Secrond - Cron daemon supporting seconds

Registered 2009-05-29 by Werner Bayer

Secrond is a light-weight cron implementation that allows running of user-specified programs at periodic scheduled times, handling tasks in intervals of seconds rather than minutes, as well as hours and days.

While it is possible to achieve similar behaviour by using a traditional cron daemon and adding sleep()s to the programs executed, it is impractical.

Secrond, having 10 entries in the schedule, reserves only about 400 bytes of memory, and observation in tools like top show no significant CPU usage (0.0%). Secrond has been tested with valgrind which results are "no memory leaks possible".
