What would be the correct way to declare an array inside a script that will be called by cron?
I wrote a KornShell (ksh) script that sets up an array like this:
set -A fruits Apple Orange Banana Strawberry
but when i try to run it from inside cron it throws the following error:
Your "cron" job on myhost /myScript.sh produced the following output: myScript.sh: -A: bad option(s)
I've tried many variations of the crontab syntax, for example:
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /path/to/script/myScript.sh
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * /path/to/script/./myScript.sh
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * cd /path/to/script && ./myScript.sh
Any workaround would be sincerely appreciated. Many thanks!
