    Default CLI reminder type software

    I am looking for some software that I can display a message at a certain time. Any suggestion?

    Default Re: CLI reminder type software

    There's David (Roaring Penguin) Skoll's remind. The sources are here:

    Remind | Roaring Penguin

    But I just looked in OBS (software.opensuse.org > Search) and there are couple of contributed packages.

    (It turned out that I have a 2005 release installed in my /usr/local but I hadn't used it for a long time and forgot about it. I guess I needed to be reminded about remind.

    'at' is a service made to do this and it is built into everything SUSE (if
    not everything Linux/Unix). The only trick is making sure you have a
    command in mind that will do the "display" part, and how that happens
    depends on your requirements. You could do something like send yourself
    an e-mail or write to a file or call a GUI-based something-or-another to
    pop up a message. Perhaps use 'wall' to write to other users (or yourself).

    Good luck.
