hi

I am working on solars 10, and having query on simple bash command,
would like to get date like 1/15/14 , i.e. m/dd/yy , instead of mm/dd/yy

I can simply do like below, but I would like to remove 0 (zero) from month...

bash-3.2$ date "+%m/%d/%y"
01/15/14
bash-3.2$ date "+%D"
01/15/14

can somebody help me on simple scripting or command?

bash-3.2$ date "+%m/%d/%y" | sed 's/^0//'
bash-3.2$ 1/15/14

bash-3.2$ MDY=$(date "+%m/%d/%y" | sed 's/^0//')
bash-3.2$ echo $MDY
bash-3.2$ 1/15/14

bash-3.2$ MDY=$(date "+%m/%d/%y")
bash-3.2$ echo ${MDY#0}
bash-3.2$ 1/15/14

If you support GNU libc extension
date "+%-m/%d/%y"
