Where is the Crontab File on Solaris

Many times to see the crontab content we use the crontab -l command and to modify it we use the crontab -e command. The crontab as we see it or edit it is not more than a file, which can be seen with a simple cat, view, etc and can be modified directly (having the right permissions since it is owned by root and we must have permission from this to modify it). In Solaris the file is located in the following location (usually each user have its own file);

/var/spool/cron/crontabs
