I use a couple of cronjobs that reside on my website's "back end" at the hosting company that work like this:
At a set time each week, a batch of files, say from "Folder A." is moved to a folder, replacing the files there which have the same name (overwrites them).
If there are no files in folder A, an email is sent to me notifying me of the lack of files AND then moves a group of same-named files from a standby folder.
I had these jobs created years ago by a freelancer. Now I need some more. I have a background (from more than ten years ago) in BASIC and I'm wondering if I can learn how to do this fairly quickly and easily or if it would be better to farm it out to a freelancer. I;m not in a huge hurry, but the sooner, the better.
OR is there an online "auto-writer" type of service that takes your input and generates the code, either at no cost or for a proce?
