How to list only today's files
Sometimes you may have difficulties in finding those files created/modified today using "find -mtime" command. What we can do is to take advantage of the "-nt" (file newer) conditional expression. By creating a file at exactly today at 00:00, we can use that to compare.
today="/tmp/today.$$" touch -t `date '+%Y%m%d0000'` $today for i in `find . -type f` do if [ $i -nt $today ]; then echo $i fi done rm -f $today
BTW, "-nt" available only in Korn and Bash shell.
