I think there was some discussion of scheduling implemented in Ruby a
while ago here but can’t remember the details. Maybe a search in the
archives reveals more. RAA would also be a good place to look. Then
you also have to invoke some kind of service wrapper around the Ruby
interpreter but I believe you’ll find something like this - maybe even
from MS. HTH

Kind regards

The Task Scheduler is already a service, but it’s possible there’s
something else out there. There’s probably ‘cron for windows’ and
such. A pure Ruby cron-like service would be a cool project,
though. :slight_smile:

Junkone, are you having trouble with the taskscheduler or the win32-
taskscheduler library? The latter could probably use some TLC.

There is Taskr that just got out of the door :

Though maybe it’s already a bit too much for just “ruby in xp”.

I use PyCron on Windows which is very similar to Cron. It works well,
runs as a service, automatically restarts when Windows starts up and can
schedule anything. I use it kickstart a CMD file that sets all the
environment variables we need and then class the Ruby script we want.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Mohit.

Or, maybe, use an existing solution:
(This was just the first google result :wink:
http://cronw.sourceforge.net/

How about the “at” command instead then?
