Find all files other than first two files dates & last file date for month

Hi All,
I need to find all files other than first two files dates & last file date for month and month/year wise list.

lets say there are following files in directory
Code:
Mar 19 2012 c.txt
Mar 19 2012 cc.txt
Mar 21 2012 d.txt
Mar 22 2012 f.txt
Mar 24 2012 h.txt
Mar 25 2012 w.txt
 
Feb 12 2012 q.txt
Feb 21 2012 a.txt
Feb 21 2012 aa.txt
Feb 22 2012 s.txt
Feb 23 2012 k.txt
Feb 27 2012 j.txt
 
Mar 19 15:43 c.txt
Mar 21 15:43 d.txt
Mar 22 15:43 f.txt
Mar 24 15:43 h.txt
Mar 25 15:43 w.txt
Mar 25 15:43 ww.txt
 
Feb 12 15:43 q.txt
Feb 21 15:43 a.txt
Feb 22 15:43 s.txt
Feb 23 15:43 k.txt
Feb 27 15:43 j.txt
Feb 27 15:43 jj.txt

output should be:
Code:
for Mar 2012
Mar 22 2012 f.txt
Mar 24 2012 h.txt
 
for Feb 2012
Feb 22 2012 s.txt
Feb 23 2012 k.txt
 
for Mar 2014
Mar 22 15:43 f.txt
Mar 24 15:43 h.txt
 
for Feb 2014
Feb 22 15:43 s.txt

Please use code tags as required by forum rules!

How about trying to adopt & adapt what you learned from your other tread?
And, your specification is not consistent with your sample output. Where are
Code:
Mar 21 2012 d.txt
Feb 21 2012 aa.txt
Mar 25 15:43 w.txt
Feb 27 15:43 j.txt

?

I did not get what you not understand from above question.

I have clearly mention that first two file dates & last files dates files i dont want in the output list.

rest all files i want. thats it.

My way of seeing things is you know what you dont want : search for them first and create a list with them, then parse the directory excluding the list content

Code:
MONTH=Sep

So what you dont want: (create list...)
Code:
for i in $(ls -l |awk '{print $6}'|sort|uniq )
do
   echo MONTH=$i
   ls -lrt|grep ^- |grep " $i "|head -2|awk '{print $9}' >>test.0009
   ls -lrt|grep ^- |grep " $i "|tail -1|awk '{print $9}' >>test.0009
done

Then as previous post ( but thats an example...)

Well based on what you said we could not guess the number of files impacted... I would go processing by month so you can do some in parallele ( that means also creating a exclusion list by month)
