I'm not really sure how to start doing this... but i have to write a script that saves the current date in a variable and then shifts through the different parts/elements of the date using a loop and prints each one out in a separate line.

If anyone can just point me out what to research so I can get started with this i'd be thankful... at the moment i'm kinda clueless on how to do this.  would I be using grep or something?
