Have you tried using find? If a relative time is good enough find DIR -type f -mtime -6 if you need to specify a time and date, I think the only way is to use touch to makea file at the right date then use find's -newer test. -- Mail me as [EMAIL PROTECTED] _O_ |< _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
