    reg crontab


    Hi everybody,

    I am giving the cronjob from a file.

    for ex:
    ]#cat cron
    0 * * * * date;ls >> out

    ]#crontab cron
    It is overwriting already existing cronjobs.
    How can I configure cron jobs from a file for appending the existing cronjobs instead of overwriting.

    Thanks Inadvance,
    Mummaneni.

    You could append the output of crontab -l to the "cron" file. Then install the new cron using the second command in your post.

    let us konw how you get on

    To be good, you must first be bad. "Newbie" is a rank, not a slight.
