- Subject: cron running but not executing user crontab
Bit of a conundrum here. Running WIN7 and cygwin64. Have the terminal running and Perl is installed and runs. AFAIK, that all works. Used cygrunsrv to get cron going. I can see cron in a ps -af in the terminal. I set up a crontab for my user and it's in /var/cron/tabs by using crontab -e.
Doesn't seem to be running anything in the crontab. I had wanted to run a Perl script in a Windows Directory outside the cygwin structure but using the /cygdrive/c etc path. Ain't working. Even tried the simplest thing I could think of and created a line date > dt.txt on it. Normally, under *nix this would put the results of date in dt.txt in the home directory. Not there.
Just isn't running anything as far as I can tell.Any suggestions. I'd like to get this working. Want am I missing? Help appreciated. Thank you
