Re: Looking for a script

You just need to use the find command:

find /oracle/app/logs -type f -mtime +7 -exec rm {} \;

The -mtime +7 means files older than 7 days, and -exec rm {} execute the action.
Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?
