An updated at package that fixes one bug is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The "at" package provides the at and "batch" commands, which are used to read commands from standard input or from a specified file. The "at" command allows you to specify that a command will be run at a particular time. The "batch" command will execute commands when the system load levels drop to a particular level. Both commands use the /bin/sh.

Bug Fix

Due to an error in the time-parsing routine, the "at" command incorrectly calculated the year when a job was scheduled by using days on input. For example: "at now + 10 days". This update fixes erroneous grammar so that "at" now schedules jobs correctly.
All users of at are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which fixes this bug.
