Binary package “fcron” in ubuntu maverick
cron-like scheduler with extended capabilities
Fcron is a scheduler. It implements most of Vixie Cron's functionalities.
But contrary to Vixie Cron, fcron does not need your system to be up 7 days
a week, 24 hours a day: it also works well with systems which are running
neither all the time nor regularly.
Fcron also includes a useful system of options, such as: run jobs one by
one, run jobs at fcron's startup if they should have been run during system
down time, a better management of the mailing of outputs, set a nice value
for a job...
