It does have much in common with anacron, but anacron lacks one feature
which would be very useful: the ability to get it to start running its
jobs when commanded to.  I do a fair amount of audio transcription, and
system housekeeping creates too much of a load to allow it to record
audio reliably.  So I would sometimes like to sometimes get system
housekeeping over with immediately.  This is possible with anacron: log
in as root; kill the instance of anacron started at system startup; then
run "anacron -n".  But it's rather tedious, and fcron provides tools to
do this.  So...

Any info about fcron would be very welcome.
