Hi All,

  I need to pass data values to the weblink below.

For ex:

   If I type the below command @unix prompt:

[appltest@test ~]$ date +"%m-%d-%y"
01-24-13

   I get 01-24-13 and want to pass these values to the below so that daily it takes values of that day and pass it to the weblink.


http://www.tcmb.gov.tr/kurlar/201301/24012013.html

 In the above link, I need to pass year and month after kular/%year%month%/%day%month%year%.html

  So that daily it will pick up with different days and month values like:

If 24-01-13, then weblink should be:

http://www.tcmb.gov.tr/kurlar/201301/24012013.html

If 25-01-13, then weblink should be:

http://www.tcmb.gov.tr/kurlar/201301/25012013.html

and if Feb i.e 04-02-13, then:

  Any ideas...Help Appreciated..

Thanks
Aman

This would also work:

URL="http://www.tcmb.gov.tr/kurlar/`date +"%Y%m"`/`date +"%d%m%Y"`.html"
echo $URL

I wasn't fast enough, but I had the answer so I thought I would post it anyway.
