Question Date Usage

To get the current long month you'd do: `date +%B` = 'December'.

So how can I do the same for the previous month?
Do I need to create a case statement to handle this?

Please search the board for the answer to this question. People usually ask how to get yesterdays date, but the same techniques can be applied to get the previous month. Check the FAQ section under the "FAQ Submission Queue"
