an advanced batch scheduling system for GNU.

GNUbatch is a job scheduler for the GNU system. It executes jobs at specified dates and times, according to dependencies, or interlocks defined by the user.

This package is based on a product first released in 1990 and worked on continually since then. It provides Batch scheduling with "job control variables" which may be atomically tested and set to provide arbitrarily complicated job chaining and interlocking. Interfaces are provided for shell, "curses", GTK, API for C and C++ (has been adapted for Java), web browser, and Motif.
