Cronwrap is a utility that offers more control over the execution of a cron job than the standard cron daemon allows.
Cronwrap project can ensure and report that the job completes within a specified time period. It can email and/or log any output produced from the job. It reports on the exit status of the job.
This was developed at the University of Wollongong to manage the email output
from scheduled jobs with cron.
Just type "make" and put the cronwrap binary into the file system where you can run it.
