10:00am Wed 24th Aug, Ryan W.

If the month is not specified, but the day of the week is, can the day of the month be specified?

For instance:

* * 1 * mon foo

I intepret this as valid and meaning:

"run foo on every minute of every hour on the first day of each month if it's a monday"

but I'm not sure.

Also can the same command be on multiple non-comment lines

* * 1 jan * foo
* * 2 jan * foo

In which case it means "run foo every minute of every hour on both the 1st and 2nd day of January".

Sorry if you've already answered this
