This diagnostic script came about because there are
a number of environmental elements that have to be
in place before cron can run.  Although they are
created, these elements can get deleted.

Attached below is version 1.6 of the script.
The update in this version adds a message recommending
that the user examine cron's log file.

------------------------------------------- will attempt to diagnose 
problems with cron.

It will not modify any files on your computer.

You might need to run the script several times.

Each time that it finds a problem, it stops and
displays a descriptive message.

Please read the messages that the script
generates, especially if it reports no errors,
but you still cannot get cron to work for you.

These messages should help you to report
problems that occur in setting up cron, and
possibly reduce the number of messages about
cron that need to be sent to the mailing list.

Please report the version number that this
script reports so that improvements can be
made to it.
