A contab is a table of cron jobs. A crontab is simply a plain text file that contains a list of cron jobs. A cron job is an entry in a crontab.

Structure of a cron job:

A cron job contains six fields.


*    *     *    *     *     a_ command_to_execute
|     |     |     |     |
|     |     |     |     +------- day of week (0 - 6) (0=Sunday)
|     |     |     +--------- month (1 - 12)
|     |     +----------- day of month (1 - 31)
|     +------------- hour (0 - 23)
+--------------- min (0 - 59)


A crontab example:


# Execute script "/home/user/forwardmail" every minute of every day
*     *     *     *     *     /home/user/forwardmail

# Execute script "/home/user/" every 5 minutes
*/5  *     *     *     *     /home/user/

# Execute script "/home/user/" at 12:00 AM every day
