RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for anacrontab (redhat section 5)

ANACRONTAB(5)			      Anacron Users' Manual			    ANACRONTAB(5)

NAME
       /etc/anacrontab - configuration file for anacron

DESCRIPTION
       The file /etc/anacrontab describes the jobs controlled by anacron(8).  Its lines can be of
       three kinds:  job-description lines, environment assignments, or empty lines.

       Job-description lines are of the form:

	  period  delay  job-identifier  command

       The period is specified in days, the delay in minutes.  The job-identifier can contain any
       non-blank  character, except slashes.  It is used to identify the job in Anacron messages,
       and as the name for the job's timestamp file.  The command can be any shell command.

       Environment assignment lines are of the form:

	  VAR = VALUE

       Spaces around VAR are removed.  No spaces around VALUE are allowed (unless you  want  them
       to  be  part  of the value).  The assignment takes effect from the next line to the end of
       the file, or to the next assignment of the same variable.

       Empty lines are either blank lines, line containing white-space only, or lines with white-
       space followed by a '#' followed by an arbitrary comment.
