Fcron is a scheduler. It aims at replacing Vixie Cron, so it implements most of its functionalities. But contrary to Vixie Cron, fcron does not need your system to be up 7 days a week, 24 hours a day : it also works well with systems which are not running neither all the time nor regularly (contrary to anacrontab).
Cronie contains the standard UNIX daemon crond that runs specified programs at scheduled times and related tools. It is based on the original cron and has security and configuration enhancements like the ability to use pam and SELinux.
100% Vixie cron replacement written in pure Guile. As well as Vixie-style configuration files, mcron also accepts files written in scheme for infinite flexibility in specifying when jobs should run.
This is the Debian GNU/Linux prepackaged and heavily modified version of Paul Vixie's cron subsystem.
