Scheduling tool for UNIX (HP-UX)

Hi,

I'm looking for a scheduling tool to use besides crontab. Any one have any idea? I want to be able to say something like every monday of the 3rd week of the month run this. With crontab I'd have to add an entry for every month.

The usual way to do this is to scheudle it with cron for evey Monday and at the biginning of the script, use a calendar function, or a bit of clever perl to determine if its the third week of the month, the exit if not or continue with the script if it is.
Although, there is a cron-ish way here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Unix/Q_10229423.html
and here's something similar using perl
