What is fcron ?

Fcron is a periodical command scheduler which aims at replacing Vixie Cron, so it implements most of its functionalities.

But fcron makes no assumptions on whether your system is running all the time or regularly : you can, for instance, tell fcron to execute tasks every x hours y minutes of system up time or to do a job only once in a specified interval of time.

Fcron has also much more functionalities : you can also set a nice value to a job, run it depending on the system load average and much more !

For more details, see description section.

07/06/2014 Stable release fcron 3.2.0
The 3.1.X branch is now considered stable and thus graduated to a new stable 3.2.X branch.
fcron 3.2.0 has many improvement over 3.0.6: (hopefully) full Vixie cron compatibility (@reboot etc shortcuts, auditing, job environment, email headers, ...), readline support for fcrondyn, improved Solaris 10 and SE Linux support. Quite a few changes were also done in the background to make the code easier to maintain and more robust.
A couple of bugs and a couple of cosmetic improvements were made between 3.1.3 and 3.2.0.
