, and thank you for your reply.
. This is exactly the sort of return I had anticipated (as you provided).
With the exceprion of:
was a reference I used to a directory.
As to find(1)
True if the difference between the time of last change of file
status information and the time find was started, rounded up to
the next full minute, is n minutes.
referring to *BSD UNIX' version of FIND(1).
Which is actually the most important part of my reason for trying this;
I need to clobber (perldoc -f unlink) symlinks (perldoc -f symlink) older than 11 minutes. Unfortunately, Perls find2perl only provides:
True if last-access time of file matches N (measured in days) (see bel
True if last-changed time of file's inode matches N (measured in days,
+ see below).
True if last-modified time of file matches N (measured in days, see be
True if last-modified time of file matches N.
# # # See below: # # #
1. * N is prefixed with a +: match values greater than N
2. * N is prefixed with a -: match values less than N
3. * N is not prefixed with either + or -: match only values equal t
NOTE: (measured in days, see below)
, which is different than the find the system provides.
As the system' find provides minutes
. While I'm sure it must be possible to feed the string some math to make it more granular, I'm not clever enough to figure out how. :(
Thank you again, for taking the time to respond.
