			<<For convenience, a few versions ago, we added a higher level to the scheduler, allowing scripts to be stored in user.scheduler.overnight and hourly. In 6.0 we also add a everyMinute table. In 6.0 we also allow the items in these table to be addresses of scripts, making maintenence easier for add-on modules. We also added a very easy way for tasks to add information to the log about what they did. It's tricky, and the details are hidden for the most part in this script.

This listing is for code that runs in the OPML Editor environment. I created these listings because I wanted the search engines to index it, so that when I want to look up something in my codebase I don't have to use the much slower search functionality in my object database. Dave Winer.
