Hi

I am practicing with Linux OS (openSUSE11.3) and I would like to get some information how to run script with Cron. For example I have small script under /usr/src directory and it is called script. When I run it it will show me content of the directory.

How would i configure this script for example to run every 15 minutes for example. or for example every day at certain time

I already asked this question but the answer was not there

Ok how do i get mail notification that this script was run

I dont see any confirmation that script is running

Thanks
