hcron alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Control" category
Do you think we are missing an alternative of hcron or a related project?
A simple job scheduler for Haskell, which just runs some IO () action at a given time.
Currently, most of the code is just a copy of the excellent cron package found in the BuildBox package (http://hackage.haskell.org/package/BuildBox) by Ben Lippmeier, slightly adjusted to execute arbitrary IO () actions.
Currently, no parallelism/concurrency is involved at all, the scheduler just runs jobs and blocks while doing so. Adding support for these is one of the major goals for the future. Nevertheless, you can run the whole scheduler as some kind of worker by just forking it off using forkIO/forkOS.
