At and batch read commands from standard input or from a specified
file. At allows you to specify that a command will be run at a
particular time. Batch will execute commands when the system load
levels drop to a particular level. Both commands use /bin/sh.
You should install the at package if you need a utility for
time-oriented job control. Note: If it is a recurring job that will
need to be repeated at the same time every day/week, etc. you should
use crontab instead.
