How to use own account env variables to cron user

hi all,

i have one account for unix Tru64.
i can login this account and i do execute special shell script(login sqlplus, execute another shell, etc... ) on this account on my server.

but i can't run this shell from cron tab.

i think that become cron user envirnoment variables.

In general you must fully define all the environmental variables you need and provide full pathnames for all commands and utilities.

start your script you call with cron by:

export PATH=set a decentpath...

. /<to your users home directory>/.profile

then what you wanted


Does it work better?
