I have a script that is started through cron. This script contains
several steps, each step writes information to stdout, in case of errors
to stderr. The total script runs for about 6 hours and then the the combined output
of all steps is mailed to root.

However, is there a way to 'examine/monitor' the scripts progress.
Perhaps cron keeps a temporary/current logfile of my scripts output,
which i can look at?

check /usr/sbin/periodic, it's a shell script. Also, it seems to be possible to send output to a file instead or also, see periodic.conf(5)
