in reply to I can't get cron to work on cygwin...

The "Scheduled Tasks" feature of Windows (at least Win2K) works just fine for this. I've been using it for months with no trouble.

    I second that. I use cygwin all the time but for something like this, I would use Scheduled Tasks (you can find it in the Control Panel on Win2K) or the scheduler service on NT. I currently use Scheduled Tasks to run a Perl script daily and it works great.
