Re: shell email alert program2007-08-31T13:30:10Z in response to SystemAdminWhat do you mean by command line based program? Alert? In any case, if this is a Unix/Linux environment, and I hope it is, there are already many tools that do this. All that is required is perhaps a small shell script around these tools to send your alert when you want to. Maybe you can describe exactly what you want your program to do. See the manual pages for mail, mailx, cron and at. C/C++ is over kill for this unless you are interested in reinventing the wheel or just practicing your programming skills.
