My first shell script to fetch the dates
Posted by Thillai Narayanan
I was with linux for the past 4.5 years, but i didn't try anything with shell scripts.Now i had a small work to deal with that.My requirement was so simple, want to fetch dates from a text file and compare with the current date.If it matches then i should do some job or display some text.If not then i should exit from the text.
