i need to make a .tar file named "backp_<date>.tar" date being the actual date.
i got this so far:
DATE=`date +%D` // gets date in format of 11/3/06
i need to make this part work.
tar -cf backup_$DATE.tar $FILE //File Being the file or dir name to backup
this is for a shell script, i tried lots of different ways but cant get it to work.
