    Running background tasks

    It is a common requirement to be able to schedule the running of background scripts.
    Typical uses of background scripts are the loading of data from external data sources, generating and emailing HTML reports, periodic database admin, data consolidation and analysis and much more.

    You can run background scripts written in Lianja/VFP, Python, PHP and/or JavaScript by specifying command line options to the lianjarun command.

    These scripts run independently of Lianja but have full access to the Lianja Framework (GUI and non-GUI) including the Database and Recordset classes.

    This provides the ability to schedule the running of scripts using cron on linux, task scheduler on windows or launchd on macOS.
