I am sure I read somewhere that it is usually best to write scripts for sh , ie /bin/sh as many of the others are located in /usr/something which when the file system is not stable may or may not be accessible. man sh would be your friend here and quite often shell scripts that are run from cron are written with this shell in mind. good luck LukeK _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
