Port details
fcron 3.0.6_2 sysutils on this many watch lists=4 search for ports that depend on this port An older version of this port was marked as vulnerable.
Periodic command scheduler
Maintained by: rde@tavi.co.uk search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 01 Mar 2001 13:33:20
License: not specified in port


Fcron is a scheduler. It aims at replacing Vixie Cron, so it
implements most of its functionalities. But contrary to Vixie Cron,
fcron does not need your system to be up 7 days a week, 24 hours a
day : it also works well with systems which are not running neither
all the time nor regularly (contrary to anacrontab). To do so, fcron
allows you to use the standard mode in which you tell it to execute
one command at a given date and hour and to make it run a command
according to its time of execution, which is normally the same as
system up time. 

This is the stable release.

In the rc.d scripts, change assignments to rcvar to use the
literal name_enable wherever possible, and ${name}_enable
when it's not, to prepare for the demise of set_rcvar().

In cases where I had to hand-edit unusual instances also
modify formatting slightly to be more uniform (and in
some cases, correct). This includes adding some $FreeBSD$
tags, and most importantly moving rcvar= to right after
name= so it's clear that one is derived from the other.

sysutils/fcron: fixup default argument promotion

When mode_t is char- or short-like, it will be promoted to the pure
int when it is passed as the variable argument [1], so we should pass
'int' to the va_arg.

I had also eliminated fflush for the stream opened read-only, since
it will always fail and there is no need to flush read-only streams.

- Install pam files directly (in /etc/pam.d, unless they already exist)
  rather than just leaving them in the examples directory.  There seems
  to be no real security advantage to not installing the pam files since
  they are required for fcron and fcrontab to operate, and root privs are
  required to install fcron to begin with.

- The sockaddr.sa_len was not set prior to calls to bind() and connect().
  The upshot begin that fcrondyn was unable to open the socket
  to communicate with fcron.

Whoa there, boy, that's a mighty big commit y'all have there...

Begin autotools sanitization sequence by requiring ports to explicitly
specify which version of {libtool,autoconf,automake} they need, erasing
the concept of a "system default".

For ports-in-waiting:

        USE_LIBTOOL=YES         ->      USE_LIBTOOL_VER=13
        USE_AUTOCONF=YES        ->      USE_AUTOCONF_VER=213
        USE_AUTOMAKE=YES        ->      USE_AUTOMAKE_VER=14

Ports attempting to use the old style system after June 1st 2004 will be
sorely disappointed.
