You may not need to use an external scheduler at all. Why not look up Perl's "sleep" command and see if you can get the same functionality all within Perl.

I have scripts that both repeat within Perl and also in a wrapper script that restarts the script should it fail or end.

I do use cron for some jobs. One thing to think about is what happens if your scheduler tries to run the program before it completes the last run. (This is not likely an issue in your case.) Another gotcha to be wary of is the run time environment. Will it be the same under a scheduler as from the prompt? Does it matter if not?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
