I have a special logfile where the logs are in this format:
The 4th through the 9th numbers in the first part of the log are the time stamps yymmdd:
I want to grep a time stamp from a certain date to the present. So, let's say I want to only have an output from Aug 7th of 2008 until now. I've always used grep in searching for strings, but even after reading the man pages, I am not exactly clear on how to grep dates from a given date to the present time.
Anyone have any ideas?
