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?

Thanks,

    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.
