revised Best system for managing ssh keys?
Based on the context, I think "private" was intended.

comment How to use my aliases in my crontab?
Thanks, all for the useful info. Couple possible solutions here including my own. I ultimately modified artifex's original idea to something more useful for my situation. Chris provided the necessary info to do it with separate scripts.

If I could use the alias directly, I would. That's the point of the question. You're welcome to propose another solution, but I'll take this solution over lots of 2-3 line files cluttering up a directory - which is what will happen as I add additional notification schemes or decide to reuse some of my other aliases.

Thanks for suggestion, but I never thought aliases were hard to maintain, and I'd rather maintain 1 file of aliases then maintain lots of wrapper files. The problem was executing the aliases in a cron job.

Thx for the updated example. I think if you add -l to your 1st line you can get rid of your 3rd.
