9.3. Date Specifications

download PDF
Date specifications are used to create cron-like expressions relating to time. Each field can contain a single number or a single range. Instead of defaulting to zero, any field not supplied is ignored.
For example, monthdays="1" matches the first day of every month and hours="09-17" matches the hours between 9am and 5pm (inclusive). However, you cannot specify weekdays="1,2" or weekdays="1-2,5-6" since they contain multiple ranges.
