Hi all,
Can u please solve my question???
How do we write a cron job?
What languages can be used to write this?
Is it only for scheduling the jobs?
Where can I find the tutorial on this topic?
Thanks for your replies.

First of all it would be a help to read and absorb the manpages related to cron and crontab. So type 'man cron' and 'man crontab' - that will tell you all about cron and crontab.
You can use the crontab command to edit the instructions for cron for any given user. See http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum13/HTML/000045.html for more info.
HTH.
