Default X-Payments missing cron job email

X-Payments requires a daily scheduled cron job. Our host's server allows us to receive an email whenever a cron job is run, but this feature did not work with the stock cron.php script. A fix was provided by our host's tech support. They added an echo message to the cron.php as follows:

echo "XPayments Cron Job was launched";

This statement can be added at the top of the file on a text line directly below the leading <?php tag. With this echo the cron job now has an output that will trigger the email to be sent.
