scheduled running of a c file, checking date/time
I am using Redhat 9.0, gcc -
I am trying to write a simple c application that:
* starts when I turn the computer on
* checks to see what time and day it is
* if it is saturday, 8 p.m. it tells a different .c application to run
I found bits and pieces in the forum to help me, but I am not quite sure where to start. I have a basic understanding of C, but I havn't done anything with background (stealth?) applications or date/time. And I have mostly used mac before, still new to linux.
