Bit of a conundrum here. Running WIN7 and cygwin64. Have the terminal
running and Perl is installed and runs. AFAIK, that all works. Used
cygrunsrv to get cron going. I can see cron in a ps -af in the
terminal. I set up a crontab for my user and it's in /var/cron/tabs by
using crontab -e.
Doesn't seem to be running anything in the crontab. I had wanted to run
a Perl script in a Windows Directory outside the cygwin structure but
using the /cygdrive/c etc path. Ain't working. Even tried the simplest
thing I could think of and created a line date > dt.txt on it.
Normally, under *nix this would put the results of date in dt.txt in
the home directory. Not there.
Just isn't running anything as far as I can tell.
Any suggestions. I'd like to get this working. Want am I missing?
Help appreciated. Thank you
