2. 1 shows the Perl code for the Cron clone. Some notes on the code follow the listing. 1 Cron Clone ###################################################### cron -- by Scott McMahan # # Usage: cron # Defaults to file named "crontab" in current directory ###################################################### use strict; ###################################################### # If you're not familiar with crontab files, they have lines # with the following: # # min hour monthday month weekday command # # - Lines beginning with '#' are comments and are ignored.

Just as the envelope for a business letter is a wrapper with the recipient’s (and your) address, the SMTP transaction itself (with the MAIL FROM: and RCPT TO: commands) is an envelope around the e-mail message. ” RFC 822 is the standard for what an e-mail message itself looks like. For most quick and dirty utilities, over which you have full control of the message, omitting the e-mail message header is okay. 5 A minimal header is generated if no header is present. If you are sending mail to a real Internet mail host and not just your own machine on the network, or if you are processing someone else’s input and e-mailing it, you should put a full, formal header on the message.

Schwartz is correct, and his way is more compact, but to apply it requires a language lawyer’s familiarity with Perl (or memorizing it as an idiomatic expression). The code uses the pattern /^$/ to skip blank lines. This pattern could be made more complex by expanding the definition of a “blank” line. If you want to allow a blank line to contain whitespace, use the pattern /^\s*$/. Schwartz pointed out when he read an early manuscript that localtime() defaults to time. 5 I do so much C programming that an intelligent, time-saving default is surprising.
