True. But that's awkward, and if you have a job that runs more than
once, it'd be convenient to be able to keep the output from each run.
I'd like to see a configuration option to send the output from each
"at" job to a file in a directory -- one per job, automatically
named -- rather than sending it out as e-mail. Or just not to keep
it at all. (This could still be overridden with -m, of course.) In
short, I'm looking for the sort of flexibility that's already built
into periodic.conf, which allows you to specify whether output is
mailed, sent to a file, or sent to /dev/null by default. This would
be useful for lots of applications, and especially for embedded work.
