Re: How to copy one particular date files.

Copy the file based on modification time? Or names? For the former, you can use touch and find to establish a range of times to move/copy:

If you need to specify a date you could do something like:

for file in $(ls -l |grep "Dec 20" |awk '{print $9}')
do
echo "copy file $file"
cp $file /$file
done
