try typing in
this will setup the crontab which is like scheduled tasks.
the normal cron has the following format
* * * * * /path/to/command
the first * is the minute 0 - 59
the second * is the hour 0 - 23
the third * is the Day of Month 1 - 31
the fourth * is the Month 1 - 12
the last * is the Day of Week 0 - 6 (Sunday = 0)
so an example using myscript.sh
0 0 1 * * /bin/myscript.sh
This would execute myscript.sh at midnight the first day of each month.
It is sorta covered in the
