This is a ridiculous newbie question, sorry!
I am running a (Python) script regularly using cron.
I would like to log the output to a logfile, and I would like to be emailed with any errors that occur if the script does not complete.
Currently my thoughts are: write a shell script which runs the script, and outputs the result to a log, and emails me if there are errors. Then run that shell script from cron.
But is there anything inbuilt in cron that would do some of this for me?
Would be handy if so.
