Yes, only the former (and also no REST of course). I'm not sure if there exists any cron which has this option. What you can always do is wrap the command you want to run into a shell script, and specify by yourself what success means, write that to the disk (e.g. /root/.jobstatus) and check that file the next time you run the script.

you are looking for an asynchronous cron. Here's a list (easiest to hardest). I'm using the easiest one (cronie)

comment If I install malicious software what may it do?
Your question is very broad/vague, but I think the first part is interesting (if dpkg could already execute malicious code in file.deb).

comment What does this regex mean? <!--.*?-->
Why downvote question and then upvote answers? It looks like legit beginner question. It could benefit from some details (e.g. which regex flavour: vim, perl, extended .. or example usage).

rm 2015 is enough. It will remove the link only (no files)

comment Folder alias / Symbolic link to return to back folder
I just noticed that it is a relative link in your question. so I edited the answer. ~ is the home directory. / is the root node. Also, . is a synonym for the current directory.

comment How do I get the exit code of a process, which runs through wine
I don't know about wine, but if $EXECUTABLE talks to stdout or stderr you could grep for an error or message which only appears upon failure. $EXECUTABLE | grep "error" when using a pipe, the variable $? has the exit value of the last program in the pipe. If you're interested in this solution, I can make it an answer.
