I have a requirement as mentioned below.

I have a file Start.log which is present in a directory called logs. the file is pipe delimitted as shown below

file content
01 | jsSeq | 2013-01-31 00:02:00 | 500

The third field is date column (YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS)

and similarly i have file End.log and file pattern is as mentioned above.

file content
01 | jsSeqEND | 2013-01-31 00:12:31 | 3000

I would like to list the files which are present in logs directory which are modified between between the time 2013-01-31 00:02:00 and 2013-01-31 00:12:31 time.

You could create two dummy files with the start and end date using touch -t and use find -newer/-older to find all files between those dates.
