To debug fcron, you should use configure 's option
You can get info on the others configure 's options by running "./configure

bash$ su root
bash# make install
You can now run fcron and fcrontab.
This is a POSIX conforming software. You must have a POSIX compiler (gcc for example) in order to compile it.
This software has been written for GNU/Linux systems. If you want to port it on an other Unix platform (thank you if you do it), try to modify - if possible - only the configure script. Please send me any modifications at
<<fcron at free dot fr>>in order to include it in future releases.
