process scheduling daemon

The cron daemon is a background process that runs particular programs at particular times (for example, every minute, day, week, or month), as specified in a crontab. By default, users may also create crontabs of their own so that processes are run on their behalf.

Output from the commands is usually mailed to the system administrator (or to the user in question); you should probably install a mail system as well so that you can receive these messages.

This cron package is configured by default to do some basic daily system maintenance tasks. Other packages, such as checksecurity, can provide further maintenance tasks.

Package version:3.0pl1-120ubuntu3

the /etc/cron.daily, /etc/cron.weekly, and /etc/cron.monthly directories
was changed to the form

         test -e /usr/sbin/anacron || run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily

What this means is that if anacron has been installed, it will
be responsible for running those scripts. This is the standard
configuration of anacron: if yo
