Each TWiki web does an automatic email notification of recent changes. Users can subscribe / unsubscribe themselves in WebNotify
of each TWiki web. The Perl script
is called by a deamon in regular intervals. The script is sending an automated email to subscribed users in case some topics changed in a web within this interval.
Installation note for Unix platforms: Edit the cron table so that
is called in an interval of your choice. Please consult
of how to modify the table that schedules program execution at certain intervals. Example:
% crontab -e
15,45 * * * * (cd ~twiki/public_html/bin; ./mailnotify -q)
The above line will call mailnotify at 15 minutes and 45 minutes passed every hour. The
switch suppresses all normal output.
