cron running but not executing user crontab
Mon Jan 15 20:50:00 GMT 2018
Bit of a conundrum here.Â Running WIN7 and cygwin64.Â Have the terminal
running and Perl is installed and runs.Â AFAIK, that all works.Â Used
cygrunsrv to get cron going.Â I can see cron in a ps -af in the
terminal.Â 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.Â I had wanted to run
a Perl script in a Windows Directory outside the cygwin structure but
using the /cygdrive/c etc path.Â Ain't working.Â Even tried the simplest
thing I could think of and created a line date > dt.txt on it.Â
Normally, under *nix thisÂ would put the results of date in dt.txt in
the home directory.Â Not there.
Just isn't running anything as far as I can tell.
Any suggestions.Â I'd like to get this working.Â Want am I missing?
HelpÂ appreciated.Â Thank you
