Date after 5 days from current date in YYYYMMDD format

Hello Experts,

How do i get date after 5 days from current date in YYYYMMDD format?

How do you compare date in YYYYMMDD format?

Thanks

You would have to write a script which takes in account for instance like today:
we are month=09 day=29
If you add 5 to 29, you are a bit out of day range... ( you would have to reset day (+4) and add 1 to month value...)

---------- Post updated at 17:50 ---------- Previous update was at 17:31 ----------

Some clues:

# with this date format month position is 99 to 9999 and day 9 to 99 so:
Code:
ant:/home/vbe $ IN5DAYS=$(expr $(date +%Y%m%d) + 105);echo $IN5DAYS 
20101034      # 34 days sep had 30 so:
ant:/home/vbe $ IN5DAYS=$(expr $IN5DAYS - 30);echo $IN5DAYS        
20101004
octant:/home/vbe $

# 3  
If you have GNU date
Code:
date -d "5 days"

# 4  
Waiting to see the script you will have to write! (nice algorithm...)

The following DIBOL program is a re hash of a program published in Computer World Newspaper in the early 1970's. The original was written in Fortran
It converts a date in the format yyyymmdd into the number days that have elapsed since Jan 1 1900.
It also converts a number representing the number of days since Jan 1 1900 to a date.

All arithmetic is integer, so 8/3 = 2

Code:
#cat xdatex.dbl
.SUBROUTINE XDATEX
DATEXREF,    A
RECORD DATEREC

I think this is what you're looking for.

Code:
date -d "5 days" +%Y%m%d

What type of comparison are you doing? If you just want to know which dates are before or after, a simple date1 > date2 (or vice versa) will work if the date is formatted in YYYYMMDD format. If you need to know specific amount of time between dates you might have to write a shell script. Let me know which you're trying to do and I'll to help out.

Basically, I would like to find last date of next month in YYYYMMDD format and want to find number of days between today and last date of next month.

Thanks
