in thread Script to zip users cmd history log files

Hi there, never mind. I wanted to do a Perl Script of the commands I provided but had some help doing it in Bash script so that pretty much did the job.
#!/bin/bash OLD_HIST_DIR="/var/log/user_history/old_logs" HIST_DIR="/var/log/user_history" MNTH_DEST_DIR="/var/log/user_history/old_logs/$(date +'%m')" # date +'%m' gives number corresponding to the current month in 01,02, +...11,12 fashion mkdir -p "${MNTH_DEST_DIR}" "${OLD_HIST_DIR}" # This will create the +directory if not present cp -p ${HIST_DIR}/*history ${OLD_HIST_DIR} gzip -9 ${OLD_HIST_DIR}/*history mv ${OLD_HIST_DIR}/*.gz ${MNTH_DEST_DIR}
