Hi everyone, Can we find sample crontab and estimate files to, you know, create our program and test it? Cheers

The project description provides a sample of one of each file; you can simply add or delete lines to your own copy of those. Start, for example, with a single line in a crontab file that runs a command just once per day, or every minute, etc. Print out the command name each time its execution is simulated, and count the lines (or pipe its output to the wc command to ensure the correct number are invoked.

Is there anything else we have to do other than output the command name when simulating the execution? For example we wouldn't have to wait() right?

The project description says, report: "the name of the most frequently executed command (a single word), the total number of commands invoked (a non-negative integer), and the maximum number of commands running at any time (a non-negative integer)." Your project doesn't need to wait(), because your project is not actually executing any external processes. Suggest that you re-read the project description.

Could we have the correct output for our program for these samples then? Everyone's logic can differ and it would greatly help if we could have one "sample+solution" to base ourselves on.

I'm currently working on a webpage to provide a sample solution; then you'll be able to upload any files, and see the sample's solutions for/with those files.

That would be awesome, thank you Chris!
