Increment time stamps.

Hi Gents.

Please can you help me to solve a problem.

I have a long list of files, which I need to change the time stamp.

Code:
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:40 00000009.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:40 00000010.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:40 00000011.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:40 00000012.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:40 00000013.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:40 00000014.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:50 00000015.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:50 00000016.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:50 00000017.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:50 00000018.segd

I would like to increment the time stamp for each file one minute,,
I am using the comand:

Code:
touch -t 1302081040.00 00000009.segd
touch -t 1302081042.00 00000010.segd
touch -t 1302081043.00 00000011.segd

But I can't do it one by one Smilie

I would like to have something like this:

Code:
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:40 00000009.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:41 00000010.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:42 00000011.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:43 00000012.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:45 00000013.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:46 00000014.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:47 00000015.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:48 00000016.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:49 00000017.segd
-r--r--r--  1 geo2 geovect 47096216 Feb  8 10:50 00000018.segd

Thanks in advance

If you know perl it should be a simple script.

try:
Code:
ls -1 *.segd | awk '{printf "touch -t %d.00 %s\n", tt++, $0}' tt=1302081040 | sh

or
Code:
tt=1302081040
for fl in *.segd
do
   touch -t $tt.00 $fl
   (( tt = tt + 1 ))
done

Do you have a GNU date on your system?

i.e. a date command that supports something like this:

Code:
$ date -d 'Feb  8 10:47 + 1 min'
Fri, Feb 08, 2013  7:48:00 PM

Hi rdrtx1
Code:
ls -1 *.segd | awk '{printf "touch -t %d.00 %s\n", tt++, $0}' tt=1302081040 | sh

This command works perfect.. But I would like to increment the hour also, when the last minute reach 59..
Example 081059
next file will be 081100
Thanks for your cooperation

Rdrtx1

This script works fine also,
Code:
tt=1302081040 for fl in *.segd do    touch -t $tt.00 $fl    (( tt = tt + 1 )) done

But I notice that it runs the increse the seconds from 0 until 100 interval 1sec,, There is opcion to midify it in order to make the touch -t from 0 to 59, then increase the minute
Example
previous file time 081059
next file time shuold be 081100

Thanks in advance

This is why I asked if you have GNU date as it does a lot of this time/date processing for us and makes the increment code much simpler (thinking about times close to midnight on the last day of the month).
