I am now entering the dark and mysterious path of the Terminal for the first time.


I tried follow the guide and do some changes in the crontab but my terminal looks different even though I run the same commands. Here is how my terminal looks:


# /etc/crontab
SHELL=/bin/sh
PATH=/etc:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin
HOME=/var/log
#
#minute hour mday month wday who command
#
#*/5 * * * * root /usr/libexec/atrun
#
# Run daily/weekly/monthly jobs.
15 3 * * * root periodic daily
30 4 * * 6 root periodic weekly
30 5 1 * * root periodic monthly


In the guide it says something like root sh/etc/daily... instead of just 'periodic daily'. Why does it do that?
By the way, I'm using a Mac Os X (not a jaguar)
