NAME         top

       cronnext - time of next job cron will execute

SYNOPSIS         top

       cronnext [-i users] [-e users] [-s] [-t time] [-v] [-h] [-V]

DESCRIPTION         top

       Determine the time cron will execute the next job.  Without
       arguments, it prints that time considering all crontabs, in number of
       seconds since the Epoch.  This number can be converted into other
       formats using date(1), like date --date @43243254

OPTIONS         top

       -i user,user,user,...
              Consider only the crontabs of the specified users.  Use
              *system* for the system crontab.

       -e user,user,user,...
              Do not consider the crontabs of the specified users.

       -s     Do not consider the system crontab, usually /etc/crontab file.
              The system crontab usually contains the hourly, daily, weekly
              and montly crontabs, which might be better dealt with

       -t time
              Determine the next job from this time, instead of now.  The
              time is expressed in number of seconds since the Epoch, as
              obtained for example by date +%s --date "now + 2 hours".

       -v     Scanning of the crontab is done in verbose mode.  Each user
              and job the next execution time is printed both as number of
              seconds since the Epoch and in the standard format.

       -h     Print usage output and exit.

       -V     Print version and exit.
