Network for file in ???? - command

using <B>Bourne shell</B> how can I list all files in such a directory that file name don't match a pattern.

e.g:
a dir. /mydir contains these files
[tamer001]-/mydir$ ls
2001-01-23.log
2001-01-23_08-30.log
2001-01-23_15-59.log
2001-01-24_00-00.log
2001-01-24_11-52.log
2001-01-24_18-34.log
2001-01-25.log
2001-01-25_13-30.log

I want to move all files except the files of 25th of the month (which is today files) and rename the files by adding a string to the begining of the file name.

so here what I did:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/sh
dir=/var/dist
cd /mydir

for file in *.log
do
 if [ -f $file ]
  then
    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
done

how can I exclude moving today log files from the dir /mydir ?

please help.

cd /mydir
DATE=`/usr/bin/date "+%Y-%m-%d"`

for file in !(${DATE}*.log);

Tamer: Seems like a good exercise to take PxT's script and convert it to the shell script you want. I thought PxT did a great job answering this for you. After all, if you have the script in one shell, it should be minimal work to figure out how to convert it to another. It is good practice for you to do a little 'shell conversion' don't you think? Please post your version when you are finished so others can learn from your work too!

Thanks; but I was spent 2 days to write 200 line of code to logroll my mail server log files, zip them and transfer them to another server for anther purposes; and this was the only problem I faced, anyway I will do it and post it again.
