i'm having a bit of truble with cron.
i have just installed a fresh cygwin on a win2k box.
first i create the following crontab
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE - edit the master and reinstall.
# (/tmp/crontab.1244 installed on Fri Jun 20 16:27:11 2003)
# (Cron version -- $Id: crontab.c,v 1.7 2003/04/15 15:13:41 corinna Exp $)
0 0 * * * Tim echo "hello"
then run cron (/usr/sbin/cron)
if i do a ps i get the following:
PID PPID PGID WINPID TTY UID STIME COMMAND
464 1 464 464 con 1002 16:23:32 /usr/bin/bash
244 1 244 244 ? 1002 16:27:25 /usr/sbin/cron
1188 464 1188 1512 con 1002 16:33:39 /usr/bin/ps
but nothing else seems to happen!
i know this is a realy stupid question for this list, but i realy have no idea what to do.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and have a nice day
