Schedule to run a method?

Hi, everyone. I wrote a ror app. One of the methods in controller
extracts data from files and saves it to database. Because there are
many new files every night, is it possible to run this method only every
night or every other night? Thanks in advance.

Simplest way in Linux/Unix/MacOSX is with cron and ‘script/runner
Class.class_method’ or something similar. Probably best to run it as
same
user as the Rails server to avoid permission problems. There are other
ways
that may be more appropriate in some cases. If you care to share more
details
I could recommend an ever better method.
