This is a port of CISC's cron-like tool. Source comes in a separate package.

Original README
Very powerful poor-man's cron-tab that is
100% Pure so it can be made resident.

(This has actually been laying on my disk for quite a
while in the need for better docs, I just made a quick
cleanup so you get the general idea, and hopefully you
will figure out the rest by yourself. ;) )


$ waitx TIME=12:34:12 echo "this is an example"
  Waits until 12:34:12 is reached and will execute echo

$ waitx H=5 M=36 echo "this is an example"
  Will wait 5 hours and 36 minutes and execute echo

$ waitx HOURS=2 MINS=12 SECS=59
  Will wait 2 hours, 12 minutes and 59 seconds and then
  returns to the prompt

$ waitx DY=1 L=5 echo "this is an example"
  Will wait 1 day and execute echo,
  then repeat this a total of 5 times

$ waitx M=15 ALWAYS echo "this is an example"
  Will execute echo every 15 minutes

$ waitx D=12/9 T=16 L=0 echo "this is an example"
  Will wait until September 12th 16:00 and execute echo,
  and repeat forever

$ waitx echo "this is an example"
