Are there any crontab interface "shortcuts" in any (compatible/compliant) version of cron? We run some scripts with a regular interval, but offset.
I dislike lines like this;
3,8,13,18,23,28,33,38,43,48,53,58 * * * * command
I believe I have tried something like;
3/5 * * * * command
*/5+3 * * * * command before to no avail.
Is there any way to normalize/shrink cron entries with offset schedules such as the above?
