Shell Script for Copy Files and and append modified date
Posted on 2010-04-05
I've asked similar question for Windows and Mac, but I need the same thing for linux.
I need a shell script for this :
I have a folder that contain several files, for example Folder A with 3 files : Susan.log, Mitch.log, Bryan.log. OS : Windows XP
I want to copy those 3 files to folder B, but I need when copied the file name will append date time with format : yyyymmdd. With the yyyymmdd is fetched from the modified date of those 3 files.
File in Source Folder Modified Date The result of copy in Folder B
================= ============== =============================
Susan.log 23-March-2010 20100323-Susan.log
Mitch.log 18-Dec-2009 20091218-Mitch.log
Bryan.log 7-Dec-2008 20081207-Bryan.log
Please give me the SH file for these results : copy files from folder A to Folder B, with the files name including the modified date of the corresponding files.
