Annotation of pkgsrc/time/anacron/DESCR, Revision 220.127.116.11
1.1 jmmv 1: Anacron is a periodic command scheduler. It executes commands at intervals
2: specified in days. Unlike cron, it does not assume that the system is running
3: continuously. It can therefore be used to control the execution of daily,
4: weekly and monthly jobs (or anything with a period of n days), on systems that
5: do not run 24 hours a day. When installed and configured properly, Anacron
6: will make sure that the commands are run at the specified intervals as closely
7: as machine-uptime permits.
