I am no cron expert but I don't think so.  I think in your tmpremove
file you would only list the command needed to remove the /tmp files.  I
am not the most familiar with the commands but you will probably want
enough to del /tmp/*.* like you have, but also add something to suppress
the delete confirmation and something to make it run in the background.
The you would add the 0,23.*,*, 1-5 /somepath/tmpremove to your crontab.
David, if you get a chance could you throw out how you setup your cron

This will be my first effort at cron, so please confirm that this is how
the cron file should be setup.

0, 23, *, *, 1-5, del /tmp/*.*

Then I would name the file tmpremove.cron

Then I would do a crontab -l to make sure I had no files of the same

Then I would crontab tmpremove.cron to activate the file.

Is this all correct?

this situation?


I think I recall David Trask having similar problems and fixed this with

a cron job to remove all files from within /tmp periodically.
