Cron format consists of five fields, each delimited by a space. * * * * * - - - - - | | | | | | | | | +----- day of week (0 - 6) (Sunday=0) | | | +------- month (1 - 12) | | +--------- day of month (1 - 31) | +----------- hour (0 - 23) +------------- min (0 - 59) A field may be an asterisk (*), which always stands for "first-last". Ranges of numbers are allowed. Ranges are two numbers separated with a hyphen. The specified range is inclusive. For example, "8-11" for an "hours" entry specifies execution at hours 8, 9, 10 and 11. Lists are allowed. A list is a set of numbers separated by commas. Examples: "1,2,5,9", "0,3,4". Example: 20,40 5-8 20-30 * * Description: 20,40 Run when the minute is 20 or 40 5-8 of 5 through 8 am 20-30 during the 20th through 30th day * of each month * no matter what day of the week it is. This implementation allows only day-of-week or day-of-month to be limited at one time. One or the other (or both) must be *.
