Using the 'cron' scheduler
Authored by: robleach on Apr 01, '10 08:02:20AM
Well, I can't confirm that it worked yet, but I have a tip to add. Turns out that the version of perl that root was using was different than the one my account was using. It would have been useful to have the STDERR output, so I changed the shell script call in my applescript wrapper to do something like this:
myscript.pl 1> stdout 2> sterr;cat stderr stdout > mail.pl
I set my cron file to run in a minute and it worked. Now I just have to see if it will work over night. Rob
