Help with ksh script to list, then cp files from a user input date range

Hi,

I'm quite new to ksh scripting, can someone help me with this.

Requirements:

I need to create a script that list the files from a user input date range.
e. g. format of file:

*c1*log.2012-12-22-14-00*
*c1*log.2012-12-22-14-00*
*c1*log.2012-12-22-14-00*
*c1*log.2012-12-22-14-00*
*c1*log.2012-12-22-14-00*
*c1*log.2012-12-22-14-00*
*c1*log.2012-12-22-15-00*


, then copy the files to another server through ssh or sftp.

1. user input the date range of files to search
2. Search the files in live_dir and archive_dir
; inside the archive , are subdirectories in format of
2012-Dec-18
2012-Dec-19
2012-Dec-20
2012-Dec-21
2012-Dec-22
3. Once files are found, copy the files to another unix server through ssh or sftp


Thanks in advance

Choco
