anacron

cron-like program that doesn't go by time

Variants:
Anacron (like `anac(h)ronistic') is a periodic command scheduler. It executes commands at intervals specified in days. Unlike cron, it does not assume that the system is running continuously. It can therefore be used to control the execution of daily, weekly and monthly jobs (or anything with a period of n days), on systems that don't run 24 hours a day. When installed and configured properly, Anacron will make sure that the commands are run at the specified intervals as closely as machine-uptime permits.

This package is pre-configured to execute the daily jobs of the Debian system. You should install this program if your system isn't powered on 24 hours a day to make sure the maintenance jobs of other Debian packages are executed each day.

anacron for DEBIAN
----------------------

Anacron runs transparently to the system.  In other words, you should never be
aware that anacron and not cron is actually running cron.{daily,weekly,monthly}.

Anacron itself however is not a daemon, so it will either be called at startup,
on APM power status change, or by cron. Disabling those will result in some
jobs not being executed on time.
