AT command

I mostly understand the AT command, but I have a question about the "start time".

If I run the command "at 8:00", but it is now 8:15, will the command execute, will it fail, or will it wait till tomorrow at 8 to execute ?

Re: AT command

Ok, I found the answer on the University of Information Technology Services's website, in Indiana.

Answer: If the time you indicate is later than the current time and you haven't specified a date, the job will execute the same day; otherwise, it will execute the next day.

Re: AT command

The man page for at would probably have got you to that answer quicker...

# man at

Re: AT command

Thanks :-) I looked at the man page, but did not find what I was looking for. Maybe I need more patience with the man pages :-)
