Win32 module for WinNT at scheduler?

Three-G has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I've looked up and down CPAN for a module that supplies an interface to Windows NT's at scheduler. I did find Schedule::At which has the functionality I'm looking for except that it is biased toward UNIX. Unfortunately, my place of employment is crippled--ehem!--networked with Windows NT. Do any of you know of such a module, or would you recommend I modify Schedule::At to work on my WinNT boxes?

    No. Don't modify Schedule::At.

    use Win32::AdminMisc;

    Check out Dave Roth's Perl site.

    Specifically, go to Win32::AdminMisc and see the ScheduleAdd, ScheduleDel, ScheduleGet, ScheduleList methods.

    Update: Of course, you CAN modify Schedule::At if you want. But if you need a quick solution to a problem and use a module that (I think) is pretty stable then just use the above.

    You might want to try and contact Jose A. Rodriguez, the author of Schedule::At, and see if he has already done what you are looking for (his docs on CPAN do claim that the module is OS independent). If not, you could add a patch which makes the module work on $^O eq 'MSWin32' and offer it the him.

[ambrus]: I'm not trying to recommend PHP, but I think it has way too bad a name because of its past.
[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the
[ambrus]: formatting conventions of a journal or website can be quickly applied to it, and MS Office and LibreOffice has not quite solved this (although it's better for this than it used to be),
[ambrus]: which is sort of a drawback compared to the ages of typewritten manuscripts representing content only to which the typesetter applies formatting, but that process required much more manual labor.
[ambrus]: If you want to typeset a manuscript, you can still do much less work then in the manual typesetting ages and get good formatting.
[ambrus]: All with only cheap modern computers and software.
[ambrus]: Something you can have at home and your corner print shop, without a whole printing press's worth of equipment.
