Have you seen the EXAMPLE CRON FILE section of the man 5 crontab?

      # use /bin/sh to run commands, overriding the default set by cron
      # mail any output to `paul', no matter whose crontab this is
      # run five minutes after midnight, every day
      5 0 * * *       $HOME/bin/daily.job >> $HOME/tmp/out 2>&1
