shell scripting question
Hopefully somebody here has perhaps seen this oddity and can provide some
insight into the cause.
I have a very simple shell script as follows:
mail:~/scripts# more topcheck
date > /usr/local/apache/htdocs/topout.txt
echo "\c" ; top -n 1 >> /usr/local/apache/htdocs/topout.txt
I have also tried just: top -n 1 >> /usr/local/apache/htdocs/topout.txt
Both top commands do the same thing.
I then have this scheduled in cron to run every 5 minutes.
If I run this from the command line I get a nice report. When I run it in
cron all I get is the date.
Does anybody know why this would happen like this?
