While there are several valid methods above, they are all making this way too hard.

This is one of the things that Windows gets right. Assuming you are on Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows 2003, you can solve this in less than a minute with zero code!

First, disable whatever method is currently launching the main script.

Next, set that same script up again to be launched by the built-in Windows Task Scheduler. Tell Task Scheduler that you want your script run every five minutes, UNLESS it is already running from last time. Voila!

Hope you get this before spending too much time with another solution...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
