In order to use this command you must possess the 'Cron' Power. This command alone with no switches will display all the @cron specs you control.
@cron/add creates or alters the job named <cronjob>. The <type> given specified whether the attribute holds functions or commands. If <object> is "global" then the cronjob will execute the job on all objects the 'executor' that adds the cronjob controls.
@cron/set sets or unsets a flag on <cronjob>. Valid flags are: COMMAND FUNCTION (not enabled as of this writing) HALT
A cronjob may only be of the 'COMMAND' type as now for executing, functions are disabled. If the Halt status is set on a @cron job then the job will not be processed.
@cron/list will show information about the cronjobs. If you specify <cronjob> you will see more information about the cronspec for that job.
@cron/delete will remove <cronjob> from the crontab. 2 Default global cronjobs are included, being an 'Hourly' and a 'Daily'
Daily spec triggering the 'Daily' attribute at the beginning of each day and the Hourly spec triggering the 'Hourly' Attribute at the beginning of each Hour.
A cronspec describes at which time a cronjob will be executed. The fields of a valid cronspec are as follows:
<minutes> <hours> <days of month> <months> <days of week> 0-59 0-23 0-30 0-11 0-6 Jan-Dec Sun-Mon
Each field may contain a range of numbers, e.g. 2-5, or a * to indicate 0 through the maximum for that field.
A skip value can be used to select values from a range. It is specified as /<skip>, e.g. 0-23/2 would execute at 0, 2, 4, etc. until 22.
You can specify a list of values in each field, seperated with a comma. e.g. 0,2,4,6,10-14,20-30/5.
For the months and days of the week you may specify the english names or 3 letter abbreviations. January and Sunday are 0.
