NAME

bcrontab - Manage users crontab files

SYNOPSIS

bcrontab [ -u user ] file bcrontab [ -u user ] { -l | -r | -e }

DESCRIPTION

bcrontab interfaces with the bcron-spool daemon to manage crontab files in the privileged spool directory.

OPTIONS

-u user Tell bcron-spool that we are acting on behalf of the named user. bcron-spool will only accept the username if bcrontab is running as either root or the same user ID as the named user. -l List the cronab crontab to standard output. -r Remove the user's crontab. -e Edit the current crontab.

ENVIRONMENT

VISUAL If this is set, it is used as the editor to invoke to edit a crontab. EDITOR If $VISUAL is not set and this is, it is used as the editor to invoke to edit a crontab. If neither are set, /bin/vi is used. BCRON_SOCKET The path to the named socket used to communicate with bcron-spool. Defaults to /var/run/bcron-spool. LOGNAME USER These two variables are used, in order, to determine the user name invoking the program. One must be set if the -u option is not used.

FILES

bcrontab tries to writes a temporary file into the current directory, and then into /tmp if that fails, in order to edit the current crontab.
