It's simple but there's no Linux equivalent, yet. My thoughts are to implement in FreeBSD then canvas then submit a pull request to the Linux Vixie Cron maintainer and discuss with the various Linux vendors. It's a simple thing to do that empowers end-users who wish to run services on their machines without startup scripts and superuser privileges needed to maintain them -- like at $JOB where privilege separation is somewhat of a religion. -- Cheers, Cy Schubert <Cy.Schubert@cschubert.com> FreeBSD UNIX: <cy@FreeBSD.org> Web: http://www.FreeBSD.org NTP: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Web: https://nwtime.org e**(i*pi)+1=0
