    Python mod sched question

    I've tried asking this same question on a few other forums but I've gotten no response. Maybe the question is worded poorly? Anyhow, given the following...

    [cd@localhost oakland]$ more basic.py
    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/python
    
    import sched
    import time
    
    scheduler = sched.scheduler(time.time, time.sleep)
    
    def print_event(name):
            print 'EVENT:', time.time(), name
    
    print 'START:', time.time()
    scheduler.enter(2, 1, print_event, ('first',))
    
    scheduler.run()
    [cd@localhost oakland]$ ./basic.py
    START: 1240584506.06
    EVENT: 1240584508.06 first
    [cd@localhost oakland]$

    How do I modify basic.py so that it runs every hour on the hour on its own without using crontabs or anything like that.

    I would start by asking this question on a board dedicated to scripting languages or Python.

    Well, you need some sort of scheduler process like crontabs to fireup any process. If you don't want to do that. The alternative would be have a loop like...

    Code:
    while(1)
        start the scheduled process
        sleep(hr)
    end while
    This would be your demon process executing at the background. Would that be any helpful ??
