script to execute a command based on the last modified time of a folder


Hi All,

I need a script that executes a command based on a folder's last modified time.

if "/var/data" was modified in less than an hour then "/usr/local
/etc/searchd stop" should be run


can we use "find -mmin +60 -type d" in conjunction with second command

Thanks
midadala

Probably...why don't you just try it and see?
