    Time/Timer program


    I'm new at c++. I want to make a program on my linux with c++ (which will be run on startup), who will run 3 different programs on a timer:
    - first, every half hour
    - second, every week
    - third, every month

    Can somebody help me with this program, cos my strong side is PHP and not C++.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would suggest you type this at the command prompt

    man cron
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
