How do I get the script to change the (date +%b) this month to the previous month? I need this to grep some log files in linux. I do not know any perl, only just started learning some basic scriping.

  env TZ=GMT+744 date +%d
If your linux does not, the simplest way might be to to use perl with the Date::Manip module.
Let me know ..

I appreciate it very much. Don't know any perl as I mentioned, so I need to install Date::Manip module to perl, if there isn't one and that's it?
