Project description:
Fcron is a periodical command scheduler which aims at replacing vixie
cron, so it implements most of its functionality. It does not assume
that your system is running either all the time or regularly: you
can, for instance, tell fcron to execute tasks every x hours y
minutes of system uptime or to do a job only once in a specified
interval of time. You can also set a nice value to a job, run it
depending on the system load average, and much more.
