Hi guys and Gals,

I have a simple script:


a=ia$(date +%d%m%Y)

tar -cf "$a.zip" "/usr/home/projects/lunaria/items all"
mv $a.zip /usr/home/itemsall/

this nearly does what I want, I would like to put the time in the file name aswell. If I put the %T in the date variable, the resultant value for $a has : seperating the hours, minutes and seconds.

Try as I might, I can not find away to remove the : and tar spits the dummy at them and it causes an IO device error.

I looked through sed and awk, and spent an hour playing, but all to no avail.

Anyhelp apreciated,
