Exercise 70: Missouri Knife and Scissor

You have recently finished a class on advanced Linux administration, and your boss is announcing to all customers that no request is now too big or too small. As you’re explaining to him that this route of advertising might not lead to the most efficient use of your time, he hands you an assignment.

The Missouri Knife and Scissor company has a number of shell routines that it needs to run on a regular basis:

  • ABC: needs to run every Monday at 6:05

  • BCD: needs to run on the second day of each month at 15:10

  • CDE: needs to run on March 14th and September 15th at 18:30

  • DEF: needs to run every 10 minutes between 6:00 and 18:00 every day

  • EFG: needs to run at 5 minutes past the hour on every hour between 12:00 and 16:00 on weekdays only

Write down the cron file entries that MK&S needs to run these scripts at their appropriate times.
