in reply to create file with current date for name

If you are running on a Linux box, please be aware that date -I or date --iso-8601 will give you a date like '2001-08-07'. No need for any processing, and it's the ISO standard. You can even specify an optional precision.


> date -I 2001-08-07 > date -Id 2001-08-07 > date -Ih 2001-08-07T18+0200 > date -Im 2001-08-07T18:32+0200 > date -Is 2001-08-07T18:32:39+0200
