I'm totally new to shell programming and am trying to write a script for the following task: when the files come from another system, I need to make sure that the datetime on certain file (say, date_cntrl.txt) matches today's date and if it does, execute another script. We are running Solaris here.
I would appreciate any help!
P.S. I am also looking for a web-site that could be of help in figuring out syntax information and general info on UNIX commands. Listing options and switches for all commands etc.
