Open source mind mapping with Draw.io

LXer Linux News - Sun, 12/05/2021 - 12:46
There[he]#039[/he]s something special about maps. I remember opening the front book cover of JRR Tolkien[he]#039[/he]s The Hobbit when I was younger, staring at the hand-drawn map of Middle Earth, and feeling the wealth of possibility contained in the simple drawing. Aside from their obvious purpose of actually describing where things are in relation to other things, I think maps do a great job of expressing potential. You could step outside and take the road this way or that way, and if you do, just think of all the new and exciting things you[he]#039[/he]ll be able to see.

A List of 16 Basic cron cCommands in Linux with Examples

Linux Today News - Sat, 12/04/2021 - 21:00

In Linux/Unix, we can run and schedule many tasks automatically using the cron command. You can execute both commands once or at a regular interval. ‘Cron’ is widely used for scheduling repetitive jobs at regular intervals (run using commands listed in a table called ‘crontab’) and the ‘at’ procedure is used to schedule a job once in a specific time period. Crontab maintains individual crontab files for all users. These automated jobs will be hugely beneficial to many administrators who work with Linux servers.

Generally, the ‘crontab’ file is used for backups, updating systems, synchronizing servers, etc. The best thing about the cron is that you don’t need to understand it in detail, but rather, you only need to know how to use it as part of setting up cron jobs.
