Wouldn't cron be best suited for this task? That would seem pretty
logical for running a shell script on a timed basis. It's also quite
portable. I read the man page for periodic, but the usefulness of it
seems quite mysterious to me. ;)
@monthly Run once a month, "0 0 1 * *".
(personally, I like the 0 0 1 * * method)
