Java Listing Deleted Files and Directories

Please provide me a shell script so that i can list which file or directory has been deleted, by which user and at what time. The script should take date as argument and should list out name of the file/directory, which user had deleted them and at what time since that particular date. Kindly post.

I think this is not possible, unless you write a specific rm() function shell script to put in the default profile shared for all users which overrides the default "/bin/rm" when invoked.

With the function you can log each rm invocation and store all the information you need (date and file name) in a logfile which you can then easily grep.
