Usefull CRON command info

I saw this and thought it may be usefull to people trying to get CRON working:-

01 * * * * root echo "This command is run at one min past every hour"
17 8 * * * root echo "This command is run daily at 8:17 am"
17 20 * * * root echo "This command is run daily at 8:17 pm"
00 4 * * 0 root echo "This command is run at 4 am every Sunday"
* 4 * * Sun root echo "So is this"
42 4 1 * * root echo "This command is run 4:42 am every 1st of the month"
01 * 19 07 * root echo "This command is run hourly on the 19th of July"

minute - This controls what minute of the hour the command will run on, and is between '0' and '59'
hour - This controls what hour the command will run on, and is specified in the 24 hour clock, values must be between 0 and 23 (0 is midnight)
dom - This is the Day of Month, that you want the command run on, e.g. to run a command on the 19th of each month, the dom would be 19.
month - This is the month a specified command will run on, it may be specified numerically (0-12), or as the name of the month (e.g. May)
dow - This is the Day of Week that you want a command to be run on, it can also be numeric (0-7) or as the name of the day (e.g. sun).
user - This is the user who runs the command.
cmd - This is the command that you want run. This field may contain multiple words or spaces.

Yeah, good info and not so easy to find in man pages under plain ol' linux. You have to use this command to find it:

man -S 5 crontab
