    Usage of this command

    What is the at command in Linux operating system used for? I could just give a wild guess that may be sued for some scheduling purpose. Hope I am not wrong. If so kindly correct me and provide me the correct answer?

    Yes at command is used for scheduling as you said. To be more specific the main important usage of at command in Linux is if you want to keep track of important schedules, set reminders, or run programs without attending to it you can use at command. This command is found under the /usr/bin directory which schedules commands or jobs to be run at a time you specify.
