Have you ever duplicated a cron entry, or just wanted to find duplicate lines in a file.
Here is a simple one liner, which shows all lines which occur more than once in a file or standard output.
sort cronfile.223 | uniq -c | awk ' $1 != 1 '
So to check that cron directly – just do this:
crontab -l | uniq -c | awk ' $1 != 1 '
