This package is based on the package 'cron' from project 'openSUSE:11.2:Update'. cron automatically starts programs at specific times. Add new entries with "crontab -e". (See "man 5 crontab" and "man 1 crontab" for documentation.) Under /etc, find the directories cron.hourly, cron.daily, cron.weekly, and cron.monthly. Scripts and programs that are located there are started automatically.
