Schedule a PERL script

I want to schedule the perl script on windows server but without using windows task schedule services. I want to write my own script which scedules the script and runs periodically on same day may be after some interval say 1 hour.

I tried installing the Schedule AT module this is not supported on windows. And also TaskSchedule module but there is option of repeating the jobs, it will only do it either on specific DOM or DOW.

Please help me out in this.

But your script to schedule other scripts will have to run continuously or as a deamon, assuming you meant your script is a perl script. List the real names of the modules you attempted to use.

Put it inside a batch file with extension cmd the winblows box won't complain too much ;-). make sure you give full paths as when running from the AT it needs that

In windows you can use task scheduler to schedule ur tasks

goto control panel -> scheduled tasks -> add a task.

Select the perl file u want to run and the time u want to run it.


In unix u can use the CRON jobs method
