I was wondering if there is a option to report results using the command line tool in the format as below:

--project URL operation
Do operation on a project, identified by its master URL. Operations:
reset: delete current work and get more;
detach: delete current work and don't get more;
update: contact scheduling server;
suspend: stop work for project;
resume: resume work for project;
nomorework: finish current work but don't get more;
allowmorework: undo nomorework
detach_when_done: detach project

update: contacts the server but does not force a report on uploaded work units

from boincview
Sending scheduler request: To fetch work. Requesting 222 seconds of work, reporting 0 completed tasks

This seems to be the case even when there are units uploaded but not reported

The only option is a manual update from the button menu in boincview. Here you can in one manual operation tasks
2.update projects
3.get more work when needed

I would like to automate this task in linux using crontab

For BOINC 5.8 and above: Completed work is reported at the first of:

1) 24 hours after completion (was Connect every X after completion).
2) 24 hours before report is due.
3) Connect every X before report is due.
4) On a trickle up message (CPDN only so far).
5) On a request for more work.
6) On a manual update.

If you truly can't wait, use the <report_results_immediately> option in cc_config.xml. This works in 5.10.45 and above.
