Use cron to automate iSync at non-standard intervals
Authored by: encro on Dec 09, '03 01:50:53PM
Nice hint, sometimes I forget crontab is just begging to be used for things like this. I use a 7am daily sync instead:

#minute hour    mday    month   wday    who     command
0       7       *       *       *               osascript -e 'tell application "iSync" to syncronize'
Don't forget to set your EDITOR environment variable by adding the following line to your ~/.bash_profile on Panther:

# change pico to your preferred editor
export EDITOR=pico
... or your ~/.tcshrc on Jaguar:

# change pico to your preferred editor
setenv EDITOR pico

Use cron to automate iSync at non-standard intervals

I do not seem to have the .tcshrc file on my Jaguar system (and yes I am looking for invisible files).
Any idea why?

.tcshrc

.tcshrc doesn't exist until you create it. See /usr/share/tcsh/examples/README for one way of doing it that also sets up a helpful (for some) tcsh configuration.
