cronnext — time of next job cron will execute


[-i users] [-e users] [-s] [-t time] [-v] [-h]


Determine the time cron will execute the next job. Without arguments, it prints that time considering all crontabs, in number of seconds since the Epoch. This number can be converted into other formats using date(1), like 'date --date @43243254'


-i user,user,user,...
consider only the crontabs of these users;
use "*system*" for the system crontab
-e user,user,user,...
do not consider the crontabs of these users
do not consider the system crontab, usually /etc/crontab;
the system crontab usually contains the hourly, daily, weekly and montly crontabs, which might be better dealt with anacron(8)
-t time
determine the next job from this time, instead of now;
the time is expressed in number of seconds since the Epoch, as obtained for example by 'date +%s --date "now + 2 hours"'
verbose mode: scanning the crontab is done in verbose mode, and for each user and job the next execution time is printed both as number of seconds since the Epoch and in the standard format
