Usually it's just a matter of collecting status of BControls, and constructing a command line from those. In the case of cron, crontab really is just a program that launches vi to edit the table, and sends a message to crond to reread it. So a gui would just parse the table, rewrite it, and ask crond to update. No need to talk to crontab. François.
