I know I will have to check the attribute on these files and then copy it because the directory would have other files with the same extension...
Ugently awaiting your help here....
Please don't say things are urgent...we all volunteer our time.
Check out the ctime/atime/mtime flags http://dsl.org/cookbook/cookbook_10.html
. Since you're pretty good with Linux, this should be easy.
