Parsing the date output

Hi fellows,
I need to define a notification for SSL certificate expiration.

My Command output is below: (this is the "Expiration Date")
Tue Mar 15 09:30:01 2012

So, at 15th Feb (1 month before the expiration), a notification has to be triggered by a script or sth else. How can i set an alert? The key point is manipulating the date part Smilie

you can have crontab

you can have crontab entry for one month interval and it will remaind you by send mail to your mail id.

Am working in message Queueing(IBM MQ)

Am working in message Queueing(IBM MQ) and i write some script to automate the process in my work...The crontab will run every month on 15th and you will get remainder mail.

0 0 15 * * /home/your_script.ksh

The script should have below code:

echo -e "Hello,/n/nTime to renew your SSL certificate\n\nThanks,\nyour_name" | mail -s "SSL certificate" your_mailID@yyy.xxxx

System is Solaris.
Actually, what i am trying to do is develope a script which is integrated with HP Openview. Notification part is easy, i can handle that by using sendmail. However, i don't know how to parse the date in config file in order to see what the date is; Because i have to compare actual date with SSL Certificate's expiration date.

One idea: if you have access to a database (Sybase or Oracle) they have good functions for manipulating dates and comparing dates.
