Hi Alexey and all the others
I did take a look at perl, but i am a real perl noob.
This is what i have so far:
$event = new Config::Crontab::Event( -data => '*/5 3 * * 5,6 /bin/blech' );
print $event->minute . "\n";
print $event->hour . "\n";
print $event->dom . "\n";
print $event->datetime . "\n";
print $event->command . "\n";
print $event->dump . "\n";
And if i run that i get:
*/5 3 * * 5,6
*/5 3 * * 5,6 /bin/blech
Perhaps i am missing the obvious here.
Is there someone out there who can make a script that can read a
crontab line and give the time and date of the next time it will be
output in the form:
secs_since_epoch,yyyy-mm-dd,hh:mm,command would be *great*
Many thanks in advance,
