Created attachment 202068 [details] Fix at(1) failure to assume next day The at(1) man page says: The at utility allows some moderately complex time specifications. It accepts times of the form HHMM or HH:MM to run a job at a specific time of day. (If that time is already past, the next day is assumed.) Due to an ancient bug, this only works if the hour is past. It fails if we are still within the same hour but the minutes are past: $ date Sat Feb 16 16:56:28 CET 2019 $ echo dummy | at 15:00 Job 42 will be executed using /bin/sh $ echo dummy | at 16:00 at: trying to travel back in time Simple fix attached. This is applicable to all versions of FreeBSD.
