perlAffen has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I work at a big company, the SAs are like the pigs on Angry Birds where root permission are the eggs they hoard. They won't help the user. Anyway due to some unsolvable auth issues, cron for a particular user stops working every week on a solaris box. The ramifications are huge when this happens. So I was wondering if there was a perl scheduler or something that I could run as daemon that would yield a cron scheduling equivalent. I saw Schedule-Cron but it says it is for executing perl subroutines, when I am forking mostly bash scripts. I was thinking of using a while loop and sleeping, but there is no guarantee that sleeping 60 will always be 60. If I could come up with something that wakes up at :00 seconds every time, I could write the rest.
