Cron or cron like?
« on: February 05, 2021, 12:42:35 am »
Greetings,

Now that I am getting things dialed in ( thank you to all for your help) I am wondering if there is a task scheduler or cron like utility in os2? Seems I remember something from the warp days but for the life of me can’t remember it..

Open the properties of an executable object and look at the tab named Schedule.

I believe what Dave is suggesting is specific to AOS, is it not? Perhaps another add-on / utility if not just AOS?

On my machine I rely on CRON/2 (Hobbest filename => cron2141.zip). There are other alternatives, you can find a listing on Hobbes here => https://hobbes.nmsu.edu/?dir=%2F&stype=all&sort=type_name&search=cron
