Subject:   Missing "periodic" command

Hi. Like the user below, I cannot find my periodic command. The directories specified below (/private/etc/periodic/ and /usr/sbin/periodic) are not on my machine. I certainly didn't purposely delete any system files, so I'm not sure why I'm missing commands. I've had problems before with not having certain commands that I thought were pretty basic (like info and grep). Who knows what happened. (My machine is a 500 mHz G3 iBook with OS 10.2.8)

My question is where do I go to download these commands, and how to I install them on my computer. Is it as simple as copying the two directories above from another machine with the same OS as mine and inserting them in the proper place on my machine?

Thanks for any help you can offer. Looks like my machine hasn't done periodic maintenance, like, ever, so I am anxious to get the command set up!
