Patch for CRONw 2.0

Here you can find a patch for Robert Kehl's CRONw, a CRON daemon for Windows written in Perl.
The patch adds the ability to parse alias strings for the times on which a jobs need to be run.
It was merged, in slightly modified form, into the upstream CRONw codebase on March 19th 2006,
in the beta 2.02 version.

String Meaning
@yearly Run once a year, "0 0 1 1 *".
@annually (same as @yearly)
@monthly Run once a month, "0 0 1 * *".
@weekly Run once a week, "0 0 * * 0".
@daily Run once a day, "0 0 * * *".
@midnight (same as @daily)
@hourly Run once an hour, "0 * * * *".
@reboot Run once, at startup. (This functionality is not supported by CRONw)
