I don’t use the
crontab command on my own machines (I just put files in
/etc/cron*), but recent experience on another machine made me wonder why crontab has the following options (this is from
-e (edit user's crontab) -l (list user's crontab) -r (delete user's crontab)
Right. E is for edit, L is for list, R is for delete. Makes sense. And as a bonus, it is easier to accidentally delete your crontab when you want to edit it.
