Question date comparision


hi ..

i need to do ksh script to compare two dates.

one date is from file which have output like below
11-JAN-13
06-MAR-11

second date should be 15 days before the current date.
for ex: if currrent date is 30 jan... second date should be 15 jan


now i have to compare these two dates.

if 11-JAN-13 >second date then
echo "output is date is recent(less than 15 days)
else
echo "not recent)"

Half of this question was answered here already: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...te-4175447005/ and for the comparison part converting dates to epoch is probably the easiest. See 'man date'?
