    There is no separate at daemon. Cron takes care of cron jobs as well
    as at jobs. From the cron manpage:

    "cron executes commands at specified dates and times. Regularly
    scheduled commands can be specified according to instructions found
    in crontab files in the directory /var/spool/cron/crontabs. Users can
    submit their own crontab file via the crontab(1) command. Commands
    that are to be executed only once can be submitted using the at(1)
    Cron also takes care of the execution of jobs issued by at(1) that
    are found in /usr/spool/at/. Cron simply runs the AT job as if there
    were an "sh at-job" as a cron job at the appropriate time under the
    user-id of the owner of the script. The script takes care of the
    rest. See at(1) for the details."
