bash random 24hr event
Posted on 2014-12-01
Using bash, I want to have a function which runs every X amount of time but within a range.
For example, a variable which might be set to 12hrs or 24hrs.
However, I want the function to be randomly set off, between one hour before or after the 24hr period. In other words, I need an event which runs approximately every X amount of time but not exactly on that time.
Looking for bash code as a solution.
