Script using find command
« on: November 26, 2006, 12:37:14 PM »
Hi all,

Sorry to come this forum after a long time, but really i was very busy in my project activities.

I am trying to write a script bash which display the files in dir and its subdir between particular dates.

like i want user to give input as two dates like 20061123 and 20061128, and now my script will search the files between these two dates and

i tried to make this  using find command which display the fileswhich is newer then particular date but strucked up how to find the files older then a particular date

Logic behind this  is My script find the files newer then particular date and older then some date ..then store this output in a particular file and take out common entries

Any help is appriciated...................
