hc-cron is a cron daemon for 'home computers'. It runs specified jobs at periodic intervals and will remember the time when it was shut down and catch up jobs that have occurred during down time when it is started again. Hc-cron is based on the widely used vixie-cron and uses the same crontab format so that it can be used as a drop-in replacement for that program.
