in thread Cron Jobs That Run For Too Long

And personally I take "cron" as a generic term

Interesting...I always use CRON in a *nix context. Perhaps because, until the recent Raspberry Pi Curtain Controller, the only time CRON and I came together was on a webserver.

I've also already seen people installing a cron demon on Win

I have heard rumours about's not something I've looked into.

    Perl aims to be OS agnostic but was born on Unix and is heavily borrowing from Unix tools like bash, sed and awk plus wrapping many C functions from that OS.

    In case of conflicting terminology we fall back to basic Unix terms, like "directory" instead of "folder"

    The docs on the other hand are expected to mention platform issues, at least by pointing to perlport

    flock is an anti-example, that's why I started this meditation .

    8.6 million google hits for "cron Windows"
