Auto run/Timer

Hello,
I would like my script to run once a week with out any external
interference.
More like a timer. Can it be done in python or should some other shell
scripting be used.
If anyone knows anything please let me know.

`cron` should be your way to go, IMO. `/etc/cron.weekly/` might be a
starting point (copy your script into this directoy).

And, yes, it can be done using pure Python (but I wouldn't do it). See
`threading.Timer <http://docs.python.org/lib/module-
threading.html#l2h-3422>`_.

Have a look at my 'kronos' task scheduler, available from:
http://www.razorvine.net/downloads.html

Things like this do require a Python process to be running all the time,
for obvious reasons. If you don't want that, you'll have to use a task
scheduler tool that your operating system provides (cron, for instance).
