Have googled a bit: http://hintsforums.macworld.com/showthread.php?t=25110 plus other crontab pages. http://hintsforums.macworld.com/member.php?s=2584787478dc5ab0791da9ba8d650aa5&u=28924 15 18 22-28 * * test 'date +\%a' != Tue || /command Am uncertain if above would work ootb. man crontab (22 September 2010) doesn't shed light on this.From the manual: Note: The day of a command's execution can be specified in the follow‐ ing two fields — 'day of month', and 'day of week'. If both fields are restricted (i.e., do not contain the "*" character), the command will be run when either field matches the current time. For example, "30 4 1,15 * 5" would cause a command to be run at 4:30 am on the 1st and 15th of each month, plus every Friday.
that was the crontab I used.
That matches your example.
