Schedules periodic commands

'Fcron' is a periodic command scheduler which aims at replacing vixie cron, so it implements most of its functionality. It does not assume that you run your system either all constantly or regularly: fcron can run jobs every x hours y minutes of uptime or only once in a specified interval. You can also set a nice value to a job, run it (or not) depending on the system load average, mail a user to tell him that a job has not run and why, and run a job at fcron's startup if it should have been run while the system was down.
