Windowless console app?

I need to build an application to run on Linux, that I can pass args to, but do not want any window to show, even a console. I want this to be scheduled via cron, and run weekly, then quit when finished. Can I do this as a console app without showing a console window? Or as a windowless desktop app, and still pass args? This Linux box has no GUI.

Console app - it has no inherent UI

Thanks. And it doesn’t appear that I can schedule a console app to launch via cron. Can I schedule a shell script that then launches the app?

I can’t imagine why it can’t be scheduled
Its just another executable

I couldn’t find any examples other than scheduling shell or perl scripts. I will give it a try. And thanks for your quick replies.

any “command” (executable file) can be scheduled
