Hi friends,

Recently I put into my crontab the following line

4 0 */10 * * /usr/bin/tar -cyf /backup/lab.`date "+%d%m%Y"`.tar.bz /lab

But although I can execute the command into my shell, crond refuses to
execute and send me an email saying:

<<Syntax error: EOF in backquote substitution>>

What am I doing wrong? I suspect that my problem relies on having a tcsh
as my default shell, but crontab perhaps is running a different shell.

Thanks in advance!
