Having coded fixes on the AIX 4.1.0 standard library, I have a bias and an affinity for the command, this article COULD go into depth about the powers of the find, but I'll keep this short.
The -newer parameter takes a filename as an argument to compare last modified time.
My typical M.O. is to touch a file /tmp/.newer then run find in the usual suspects' path
touch /tmp/.newerfind /var/ /usr -newer /tmp/.newerLet's say my Tivoli Enterprise Portal Server fails to start, I want to know which logs and files were updated during the startup attempt.
After a failed startup, I would
|touch the file /tmp/.newer||# touch /tmp/.newer|
|re-run the startup||# itmcmd agent start cq|
|then run the find||# find /opt/IBM/ITM -type f -newer /tmp/.newer<|
|(might want to throw in the -type f to limit the search to files only.)|
If on Windows OS, then get Cygwin, the base installation is quick and comes with bash as default.
