I have created an /etc/crontab file on a Mac OS X that runs a few simple commands. I would like to use the crontab to echo a statement in my terminal, logout from the OS (as if I was to point my mouse to the command Logout), and I am trying to test it by running an echo statement every two minutes. Here is what I have so far:
55 12 * * * echo "Don't forget to log out!! Will be automatically logging out at 12PM Sharpe!!" * 13 * * * logout 1 * * * * echo "Test"
At that point, I used
crontab /etc/crontab to ensure that my user points to the crontab file (which it does) and was able to confirm it by typing
crontab -l.. What will i need to do in order to make it so that it echoes in my terminal and have it actually Log out of the operating system at 12 Noon everyday?
