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.
# 10  
gee thanks.
but the easiest way would be to use perl

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

regds,
# 11  
Or save yourself a few bytes:

perl -e 'print scalar localtime(time-86400)'
# 12  
Thanks, kandanmv and PxT

Perderabo's code was very helpful. I used it adn worked fine, except that my linux box was giving me errors on set and typset commandsSmilie, so I just took them out!
Thanks
