Since the switch to Solaris a few people have complained about the Sun 'cron'
not being very good. As an alternative to cron, we have now installed
'cronie', which is the RedHat Linux version of cron. This is based on Vixie
cron and offers an almost identical feature set to the old cron on
To avoid a conflict with the system cron, the cronie crontab command is called
'cronie'. To convert your current crontab to a cronietab, you can use a
command like this:
% crontab -l >crontab # list existing crontab to file
% cronie crontab # install same as a cronietab
% crontab -r # remove old crontab
You should probably use either crontab or cronie, but not both, since that
could be confusing.
 Yes, "cronietab" is a fairly stupid name. Sorry.
