    Cron - for all you unix people

    Hey,

    I have a site on a web server that can schedule things to run using crontab. I need it to make a request to a web page, tabonline.php.

    What unix command could I use to request the web page? Its on a unix server (I think). I don't know how to use cron, or what program could be used to request the web page, so if anyone could help me I'd really appreciate it.
