Re: unix tool as precise counter/timer for periodic print/exec

But as far as I see, cron doesnt do what I want.
First of all, it will run as a daemon in the background so there is no
way (at least as far as I am aware) to make it output a counter/timer in
Second, as also mentioned in my initial email, I would also like a
resolution higher than once per second which is (afaik) also not what
cron is made for.
Thank you for your reply!
