In this brief chapter, we looked at how you can schedule tasks under SUSE Linux, which is essentially making programs run at certain times. We examined the cron facility, which can schedule tasks to run periodically, and we also examined the at service, which can schedule one-time tasks to run at certain times.
In the final chapter of this book, we will look at how you can access your SUSE Linux computer remotely—theoretically, from any Internet-equipped location in the world.
