Arrow Display Files Under DIR (Fedora 5)


Hello,

For one of my classes we are supposed to research to find out some Commands in Fedora 5 to accomplish the following tasks.

(a) Display a list of all the files under the /etc directory and its sub-directories that have been created or changed since the system was booted.

(b) Display a list of all the files under the /var directory and all its sub-directories that have been created or modified today (since mid-night).

(c) Display a list of all the files under the /home directory and all its sub-directories that have been created or modified within the last 6 days.

(d) Display a list of all the files under the /tmp directory and all its sub-directories that were more than 5 days old


I cant seem to find info about these tasks, probably because they are so specific can anybody help me out?

Thanks For The Help.

We're not here to do your homework. How about you turn off the computer, open a book, and get to it.

This site has a policy agains doing homework. If you have a particular question one one of the problems and can post what you tried, we can give you some hints.

To become an expert on finding files, I'd recommend downloading the source for the findutils package. From that, you can produce the "Finding Files" document.

1. untar package
2. cd into package
3. run "./configure"
4. run "make pdf"

You may need to install other packages such as "texinfo" to produce the pdf document. ( You could also use "make ps" or "make dvi" instead ).

The bashref, findutils and binutils documents are the three that everyone new to linux should print out and study.
There is a book on "Effective AWK Programming" supplied by the gawk source that I'd highly recommend if you are going to study AWK.
