Specify the user whose fcrontab will be managed, or
"systab" for the system fcrontab. Should only be
used by root. If not given, the fcrontab file of the
user invoking fcrontab will be handled. It may be useful
since the su(8) command may
Note: the user in the synopsys is equivalent to a -u user.
|-l||List users current fcrontab to standard output.|
|-e||Edit users current fcrontab using either the editor specified by the environment variable VISUAL, or EDITOR if VISUAL is not set. If none or them are set, /usr/bin/vi will be used.|
|-r||Remove users fcrontab.|
|-z||Reinstall users fcrontab from its source code. All informations fcron may have kept in the binary fcrontab (such as the last execution time and date) will be forgotten (ie. lost).|
|-n||Ignore previous version. If this option is not given, fcron will try to keep as much information as possible between old and new version of the fcrontab (time and date of next execution, if job is in serial queue, etc) if the line hasnt been modified (same fields, same shell command).|
|Make fcrontab use config file file instead of default config file /usr/local/etc/fcron.conf. To interact with a running fcron process, fcrontab must use the same config file as the process. That way, several fcron processes can run simultaneously on an only system.|
|-d||Run in debug mode. In this mode, many informational messages will be output in order to check if anything went wrong.|
|-h||Display a brief description of the options.|
|-V||Display an informational message about fcrontab, including its version and the license under which it is distributed.|
Fcrontab returns 0 on normal exit and 1 on error.
Should be POSIX compliant.
/usr/local/etc/fcron.conf Configuration file for fcron, fcrontab and fcrondyn: contains paths (spool dir, pid file) and default programs to use (editor, shell, etc). See fcron.conf(5) for more details. /usr/local/etc/fcron.allow Users allowed to use fcrontab and fcrondyn (one name per line, special name "all" acts for everyone) /usr/local/etc/fcron.deny Users who are not allowed to use fcrontab and fcrondyn (same format as allow file) /usr/local/etc/pam.d/fcron (or /usr/local/etc/pam.conf) PAM configuration file for fcron. Take a look at pam(8) for more details.
If youre learning how to use fcron from scratch, I suggest that you read the HTML version of the documentation (if your are not reading it right now! :) ): the content is the same, but it is easier to navigate thanks to the hyperlinks.
