    To test for files older than 15 mins use ... and (-M) > 1.0 / 96 in your grep.

    That's a pretty strong obfu to someone who is not fluent with the -M file test.

    It is definitely worth a comment in your code what you meant to do/'re doing there. ;-)

      You mean, pointing out that -M units are days and that a day has 24 * 4 = 96 intervals of 15 minutes?

        Nah, just saying "this tests for files older than 15 minutes" because "... and (-M) > 1.0 / 96 " simply does not look that way.

        Advice was to the OP, as you already said so in your post.
