Day light savings time - cron question

HPUX 11iv2 PARISC RP34xx

Hi all,

I am located in California, PST. What happens to cronjobs that were scheduled for last Sunday morning between 2AM and 3AM? Do they run? I'm thinking that the system clock goes immediately from 2AM to 3AM for DST, thus skipping cron jobs in that hour...does anyone know for sure?

TIA!!!

Hi:

The manpages for 'cron(1M)' tell the tale :-)
