       /usr/local/etc/anacrontab - configuration file for anacron

       The file /usr/local/etc/anacrontab describes the jobs controlled by
       anacron(8).  Its lines can be of three kinds:  job-description lines,
       environment assignments, or empty lines.

       Job-description lines are of the form:

          period  delay  job-identifier  command

       The period is specified in days, the delay in minutes.  The job-
       identifier can contain any non-blank character, except slashes.  It is
       used to identify the job in Anacron messages, and as the name for the
       job's timestamp file.  The command can be any shell command.

       Environment assignment lines are of the form:

          VAR = VALUE

       Spaces around VAR are removed.  No spaces around VALUE are allowed
       (unless you want them to be part of the value).  The assignment takes
       effect from the next line to the end of the file, or to the next
       assignment of the same variable.

       Empty lines are either blank lines, line containing white-space only,
       or lines with white-space followed by a '#' followed by an arbitrary
