Secrond is a light-weight cron implementation that allows running of user-specified programs at periodic scheduled times, handling tasks in intervals of seconds rather than minutes, as well as hours and days. While it is possible to achieve similar behavior by using a traditional cron daemon and adding calls to sleep() to the programs executed, it is impractical.
