Default Run a cronjob to call (execute) a flash file.

Not sure if this can be done.

I would like to run a cron job every xx hours that will call (execute) a flash file.

All the cronjob needs to do is make a "call" to http://domain.com/file.swf?do=this

It does not need to get data back from the "call".

Anyone here who might know how to do this?

You can do this with wget, e.g.
Code:
/usr/bin/wget -O - http://domain.com/file.swf?do=this
