Using the 'cron' scheduler
Authored by: davesnothere on May 18, '11 01:15:27PM

Found this old thread and while most of it seems to be helpful to me, there are some things I can't seem to make happen.

I'm completely new to *nix operating systems and just now getting into the guts of the OSX OS, so vim and the Terminal are fairly new to me.

That said, I have a need to run a cron process in root and I can't seem to make it happen.

I can't seem to get into the /usr/lib/cron/tabs directory, and I can't figure out what I need to do to read the cron.deny file in the /usr/lib/cron directory.

Thanks for any help.

Any vi tutorials or anything as well as any bash tutorials would be helpful as well.
