LINUX ---> Add one date to a date variable

Hi All,

I am trying to add one day to the busdt variable i am extracting from a file (DynamicParam.env). I am deriving the busdt as below.

export busdt=`cat $COMMON_SCRIPTS/DynamicParam.env | grep 'P_BUS_DATE' | cut -d"=" -f2`
Is there any function which I can use to derive as below.

If busdt=20120910, then the new derived variable value should be 20120911
If busdt=20120930, then the new derived variable value should be 20121001

Thanks Much in advance.

Hi dsfreddie,

Try the below command to get the next day's date
busdt=`date --date='tomorrow' +%Y%m%d`
