I was wondering if you know how can I run a python code once every five
minutes for a period of time either using python or some other program like
a bash script.
Use cron.
I have asked this question before and some of you answered me but I still
have problem. Most of the answers was to use cron and crontab which works on
my computer but not if I want to do it on department's computer since I do
not have permission to change those files. Is there any other way which does
not need administrator permission?
Same answer. Download the source for cron from somewhere (NetBSD,
FreeBSD, Linux, whatever), compile it and run it yourself. You can't
run setuid but if you want something that acts like cron, cron fits the
bill. Ain't open source wonderful? :-)
