Thanks for reading...
The filenames I need to grep start as zcat 20000101*, this obviously being the 1st of Jan this year, and need to grep to present day, for a user defined string, much like UKLIrad055232. This is the exact format, four letters caps, three small, six numbers.
I need the grep to be automated, from user input of string to search for (which I assume is simply $1), from the 1st of Jan (ie zcat 20000101*) to present day (today being the 14th, would be zcat 20000114*), without entering finish date.
I'm using Sun OS 5.5.1, and use VI as my editor program, and will give 300 points for a working solution!!!
Thanks for your time...appreciate it very much...
