Thread: Adding Time to a Date Command...

    Adding Time to a Date Command...

    When I do an ls -l, I receive a date or 08:00. Can anyone tell me how I might add 17 minutes to this date to use in a test statement??

    Use the "touch -t TIME filename" command. Use the man pages for more details.

    Thanks starfish, but the command listed above runs in a script every 15 minutes. The touch -t command allows me to change the date to a constant, but will not add 17 minutes to the timestamp of the file everytime it is run.
