Description Jason Vas Dias 2005-10-14 16:05:48 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #107542 +++

Description of problem:
crontab(5) does not document the following "run at" features 
(around line 110 in entry.c)

@reboot        Run once, at startup.
@yearly        Run once a year, "0 0 1 1 *".
@monthly       Run once a month, "0 0 1 * *".
@weekly        Run once a week, "0 0 * * 0".
@daily         Run once a day, "0 0 * * *".
@hourly        Run once an hour, "0 * * * *".

It would be nice if it did ;-)
