Schedule a WGET to run once
Posted on 2000-03-31
I've got a file sitting on a remote server that I need to download on a slow line. I want to use WGET to do this. I'm familiar w/ WGET and know how to use it. I want the download to start at 4:30 when everyone goes home for the day, and the download should be finished by monday morning. I'm familiar w/ using a crontab to schedule a job to happen every-so-often, but how can I schedule this download process to just take place once. Maybe should I stick my wget command in a shell script and call the script? How do I do this so that it starts @ 4:30?
