I'd like to restrict the time of day the jobs set in
anacrontab are allowed to run.
I can find in man pages online info about
START_HOURS_RANGE which is supposed to do precisely that. For example here and here. Some questions on this site also mention this setting, e.g. Job `cron.daily' started not append in /var/log/cron and In what cases will anacron not run?.
However, the man page for
anacrontab in my system (Mint 19) does not include such setting. Indeed, even if I include:
\etc\anacrontab, anacron jobs do not restrain to this time range.
It would seem from it that this setting has been dropped by
anacron, though I couldn't find any release notes to pinpoint this.
So, my question is, given the above, how then could I restrict the time of day anacron's jobs start?
