The Question is:

How do I set up a task in crontab?

The Answer is :

  Please ask the maintainer of the particular cron tool
  in use, as there is no cron utility nor crontab file
  provided with OpenVMS V7.2-1.
  OpenVMS uses various scheduling functions -- including
  the batch queues and various built-in timing functions,
  as well as freeware and various commercial process
  scheduling packages -- to implement functions such as
  those of the cron utility.
  Various cron and cron-like packages are available.
