[LDM #HNN-995230]: running pqinsert in shell scripts



Carol,

In general, crontab(1)-executed processes don't have the same environment as if 
they were executed manually from a login user shell. The solution is to have 
the crontab(1) entry explicitly source the login environment, e.g., 

    0 0 * * * bash -l -c 'ldmadmin newlog'

The "-l" option causes bash(1) to source the login environment, which adds the 
directory "~/bin" to the PATH environment variable so that ldmadmin(1) is found.
