software recommendation (2)

I need a scheduling program for Linux that can be run
from a web server (apache). The software should have
similar functionality as Microsoft schedule+. Preferably

Thanks, -Borries

The program that does schedule on linux is called cron

and you manage the tasks that it controls with a program
called crontab

see man crond man crontab for help

If you just want somehting run once use
You would need some perlscripting ability to
set up cronjob from Apache.

I was looking for scheduling software similar to schedule+
from microsoft to run calendars, etc... Something entirely different. I found what I was looking for so I don't need
this question aswered anylonger. There are two good products out there:

http://www.xwind.com and http://www.boutell.com/

I found and use a nice program called FrameCal, its a perl script that is a calander, and appointment maker.  This was the first perl script that I played with so it is simple to understand and use.   I run it from my Apache server so I can see appointments from anywhere as long as there is a computer and internet.

You can get it at:  http://curiosityshoppe.tierranet.com/framecal/index.shtml

ahhh and its free :)
