Hi,

sorry for the delayed response, just figured out.

u can use:

echo `echo '*time-0t86400=Y' | /usr/bin/adb -k | tail -2`

to get yesterdays date.

Thanks,

Whoa! Interesting approach, kandanmv! And I didn't know adb defaults the objectfile and corefile with -k like that. But it does seem to work.

gee thanks.
but the easiest way would be to use perl

# perl -e 'printf "%s", scalar localtime(time-86400)'

regds,

Or save yourself a few bytes:

perl -e 'print scalar localtime(time-86400)'
