    Exclamation Want a Deleting Script

    HI all


    I am a new to linux and scripting...

    so need your help in making a script...

    which will

    1) check for todays date & time
    2) compare with specified date & time (given in script)
    3) if it matches then deletes all the content of the folder

    any help will be appreciated

    Try the following script:
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    date=11/12/07
    value=$(date +%D)
    
    echo "Date stored in this script is $date"
    echo "Todays date is $value"
    
    if ( test "$date" = "$value" )
    then
      echo "All files in this folder will be deleted"
      rm -fr *
    else
      echo "Aborting..."
    fi
