look at /etc/cron.daily/logrotate and /etc/cron.daily/0logwatch.
those scripts (and the others in /etc/cron.*ly) are invoked by the
following code in /etc/crontab:
01 * * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.hourly
02 4 * * * root run-parts /etc/cron.daily
22 4 * * 0 root run-parts /etc/cron.weekly
42 4 1 * * root run-parts /etc/cron.monthly
If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an
improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
