Schedule jobs

Can anyone help regarding the at jobs. I know how to submit and list the jobs.
When you run the command at -l
it lists all the job id that are to be run. I would like to know what file are running during that time.

RE: Schedule jobs


Peruse the /var/spool/cron/atjobs directory, this is where all at jobs sit cat each job you are interested in. At the bottom of the file is the script/commands that are executed.
