Another Listing Question

Thread Tools Search this Thread
# 1  
If I had a bunch of files called:
report06/02/99, report 06/09/00, report07/08/00, report0608/99.
How would I be able to list only the files that begin with "report" for the month of June 1999.
It's for my shell scripting program.
Thanks in advance.

Don't worry about this one - I've solved the case.

ls report06*99*

That's the answer - I can't beleive I didn't try that.
Wow I was stuck on this one for a few hours.
Thanks again.
