Code AIX Scripting for File Manipulation


Totally newbie in scripting. And need helps in preparing a script to help me to do file moving, renaming and even delete.

I have 2 directories.
1. /FTP/new
2. /FTP/backup

a) I will be getting new text files (e.g NewFile23052013.txt) created in the directory #1 every day (let's say 10pm)
b) And there will be another script process those files.
c) Then what i need to do is to move the process file into the directory #2 (regardless of the sequence, backup can be done before the file is being processed) and at the same time, rename it to .bak (e.g NewFile23052013.bak)
d) Remove / delete the process file (e.g NewFile23052013.txt) from directory #1

My platform is AIX 6.1

Welcome to the forum.

The correct approach is handle this case in the script mentioned in point (b) after processing is over.

Can you edit that script?
