package of the day

May 30th, 2011 No comments

it has probably bin there from the beginning – i just didn’t know it was there. There’s a nifty little tool, simply called “at”, that can be used to schedule jobs for later execution. So instead of man-paging-together a long command line using shutdown to reboot my machine somewhen late at night i now do:

at 13:37
reboot
[ctrl]+[d]

The job is scheduled for the next point in time possible (that may be the next day if the time specified is already past). Each job gets assigned a number that can be used to delete it with “atrm” and one can list all jobs pending with “atq”.

. . . simplicity at work . . .
