Bug

I solve it as follows:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/sh

dir=/var/dist
cd /mydir
<b>
today=`/usr/bin/date +%Y-%m-%d`
export today
todayLogs=`ls $today*`
export todayLogs
</b>
for file in *.log 
do 
if [ -f $file ] 
then 
<b>fileExists=`echo $todayLogs | grep $file`
   if [ "$fileExists" = "" ]</b>
      if /usr/bin/mv $file $dir/access_log_$file 
    then 
     echo "$file : moved to $dir successfuly " 
    else 
     echo "can not move or rename access_log_$file" 
    fi 
 fi
fi 
done

its work.
and I'll convert PxT script to bourne soon........

Here is Perl Script that could solve your problem:

#/bin/perl

use File::Copy;

$directory = ".";
$moveto = "/var/dist";
$prefix = "access-log";
$ignoredFiles = "";
$count=0;

my ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$month,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst) = localtime;
$month=$month+1;
if($mon < 10) { $month="0".$month; }
$year =~ s/1/20/;

$today = join("-", ($year, $month, $mday));


opendir (DIR, "$directory") || die "Can't open $directory,Reson$!";
@dir = grep(/.log$/,readdir(DIR));
closedir (DIR);

# Now, for every file in the directory...
foreach $file (@dir) {
# If it contains today's date ignore it
# If it is older than 'n' day (-M "$directory/$file" > n)

if ("$directory/$file" =~ $today) {
$ignoredFiles .= "$file\n"; }
else {
copy("$directory/$file", "$directory/$moveto/$prefix-$file") || die("Can't Copy. Reason:$!\n");
$count = $count+1;
}
}


print "\n$count files moved";
print "\nFiles ignored(Today's file): $ignoredFiles";

$year =~ s/1/20/;
I know perl prides itself on the fact that "There is more than one way to do it", but why do you do a string substitution here, when simple arithmetic would work just as well?

$year +=1900;


Using a string sub. is really just obfuscation. And as an added benefit, the arithmetic method will ensure that your scripts continue to work in the 22nd century and beyond. Smilie
