# Re: cron in cygwin

ls -ld /d gives
getfacl /d gives
# file: /d
user::---
group::---
other:rwx
default:other:rwx

changing the script to /tmp/date.log also does not work

only issue I see is that
ls -l /var/cron/tabs/sgoel gives
-rw-r-----    1 sgoel    SYSTEM        284 May  9 19:53 /var/cron/tabs/sgoel

I changed its permisson to rwxrwxrwx but as soon as I install a new crontab,
the permission come again

Sanjay
