List out specific files?


Hello friends,

I have a server which contain monthly log files for past 6 months. I want to list out all files between a specified period for some scripting purpose, let's say between 10 Sept 2012 and 30 Sept 2012. So what are the ways to achieve this? Can find command with -mtime help? Please share the full cmd. Well, it's a Solaris 10 server and moreover one contraint is that the cmd should not take too much time or increase the load.
Thanks a lot!

As far as I tried, find with -mtime is helpful, but how can we define a range of dates to search files modified in specified range i.e. between 15-Sept-2012 and 10-Oct-2012 ?

Another user here once posted his collection of date-manipulation utilities, one of which is a date-grep designed specifically for searching through logs.
