OnTimer Query

I am rather amazed to find out that I have not played yet with OnTImer. Now I need to.


I have a script that uses a webviewer to download a file from the backend of a client website - hence I can not run server-side.

I would like to run the routine every 10 minutes from 6 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday.

This will also be on a Robot machine - an old iMac running Leopard.


Seems straightforward to have an OnTimer run all the time but how do I encourage it to run at the intervals I would like.


I could use iDoScriptScheduler to run an Applescript that would do what I need, but I thought it might be time to use an OnTimer.
