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.Try the following eg. this picks out the first sunday of the month 07 03 1-7 * * test `date +\%a` = Sun && /usr/local/bin/backup-full So 15 18 22-28 * * test 'date +\%a' = Tue && command TonyNot sure if your syntax will work. If it doesn't, here's what has worked for me: 23 1 22-28 * * [ `date +\%a` == "Tue" ] && /usr/local/bin/my-script Charlie
If you are firing off a script with this why don't you build the logic into the script? Let cron fire off the script every Tuesday. The script can determine if it's the correct Tuesday and take whatever action you want if it is or exit if it isn't.
