Dave, I purchased your Wicked Cool Shell Scripts book a month or so ago (great book), and have used it to “learn by example” in writing some shell scripts, as I’ve a long way to go in this area.
I need to rotate logs on an IBM AIX 5.1 Unix box, and tried using your script #55, rotatelogs for this but it didn’t work, as -maxdepth is not supported in AIX’s find command. So, I commented it out, and it worked, but also rotated everything in the subdirectories as well (no problem…backed up directory first, then restored). I am trying to get it to work using -prune which my search in Google found to be a good fix for the lack of maxdepth, but it’s not doing what I want. Help!
