Run cron scripts via Terminal for maintenance

there are 3 different ones:
1. "daily" --> removing old log files
2. "weekly" --> rebuild locate database
3. "monthly" --> rotating log files

How to:
open terminal-->type in: "sudo periodic daily"-->hit enter, done
same with other tasks

you can run all 3 tasks all at once by typing:
--> "sudo periodic daily weekly monthly"

all typings without quotes ("")!!!

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
