Question how to list files between last 6 hours to 3 hours

Hi Frens,

I want to list some files from a directory, which contains "DONE" in their name, i am receiving files every minute. In this i want to list all the files which are newer than 6 hours but older than 3 hours, of current time

i dont want my list to contain the latest files which are received in last 3 hours , likewise which are received before 6 hours, of the current time.

Any clues??

Thanks so much in advance

This should work..

find dirname -type f -mmin -360 ! -mmin -180

Thanks much, it should give the desired result but mmin does not work for me, do we have any other option?

use forum's 'Search' function for similar threads - search for 'newer'.
This is one of the threads you might find useful.
'man find'
'man touch'
