Greetings list-

I'm on the hunt for a cron scheduler that supports definitions to the second. Obviously, every cron daemon supports minute/hour/etc but I have a special application that requires finer granularity.

I know I know... someone will say "The load will be horrendous on your system" or "Why don't you simply schedule your cron every minute and make up the higher precision in your application?". Unfortunately, this will not work. I really need a cron daemon that can schedule to the second.

All ideas/thoughts/suggestions/etc welcome. Thank you!
