I have a command that i need to put in a shell script and then run a cron job with it.


Have a problem with one command.

grep  'multiple LDAP matches' PopProxy_20041007.log


this log file creates a new log file each day but has new name with new date.

Ex:


day one:    PopProxy_20041007.log    then
next day:   PopProxy_20041008.log



how can i make this command  grep  'multiple LDAP matches' PopProxy_20041007.log
to pick up the file that i need it to grep from?


Thanks,
