Daniel:

I don't believe that cron accepts any signals. You will need to kill and
restart the cron in order for your example to work. But, it might be
easier to just use crontab -e rather than  editing a tmp file. That way,
you won't have to worry about stopping and restarting cron. YOu should
be able to do your example using crontab -e.
