    how to edit crontab


    I'm on a solaris box, when logged in as root as type in "crontab -" and it drops me down a line with "1949" as the output, which I don't even know what its trying to tell me. I also tried typing "EDITOR=VI" first, and that did nothing. I know there are things to edit in the crontab file, as I can see it with "crontab -l". I'm not sure as to why I am not seeing what I think I should be seeing with the crontab -e command. any ideas?

    A) You're on a Linux Forum.

    B)
    Code:
    export EDITOR=vi
    crontab -e
    * From memory. If it doesn't work, you can Google it.
