Yes. I know what you mean. The 7 bit wasn't crystal clear to me, either. :P
I'm guessing (as my OS is concerned) ctime -- Creation-time, will probably be my best choice of targets. As I'm looking for any symlink with a creation-time more than 11 minutes ago. I suppose I could create something that grabs, and holds "current time", and break out the "minutes" portion, then capture the ctime of those files searched for -- also breaking out the minutes portion; comparing >=11 minutes && rm, or something.
I don't know. Guess I've got some more reading to do.
Thanks again for your reply!
