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, rounded to the minute. This number can be
converted into other formats using date(1), like date --date@43243254
The file arguments are optional. If provided, cronnext uses them as
crontabs instead of the ones installed in the system.
Consider only the crontabs of the specified users. Use
*system* for the system crontab.
Do not consider the crontabs of the specified users.
-s Do not consider the system crontab, usually the /etc/crontab
file. The system crontab usually contains the hourly, daily,
weekly and montly crontabs, which might be better dealt with
-a Use the crontabs installed in the system in addition to the
ones passed as file arguments. This is implicit if no file is
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", and
is internally rounded to the minute.
Do not check jobs over this time, expressed in the same way as
in option -t.
Only look for jobs that contain command as a substring.
-l Print the whole entries of the jobs that are the next to be
executed by cron. The default is to only print their next
time of execution.
-c Print every entry in every crontab with the next time it is
-f Print all jobs that are executed in the given interval.
Requires option -q.
-h Print usage output and exit.
-V Print version and exit.
