find all files called master.css

Im trying to find all files called master.css that are dated 11/5/10 and later.

Im having a bugger of a time with this.
I can get ones date 11/5/10, but how do you handle getting anything after that date also?

Re: find all files called master.css

Hi:

One way (assuming this is MMDDYY):

# touch -mt 20101105.00 /tmp/ref

# find /path -type f -newer /tmp/ref -print

Regards!

Geez, i didnt think of touching a file and bouncing off of that time stamp.

Thanks, worked perfect. I spent 2 hours on it, you took? 2 minutes?

thanks again

How did you do that?

Perhaps because this forum is littered with
similar requests. It might be hard to search
for keywords like, say,
find later
or
find newer
without finding several. For what did _you_
search before asking?

Potentially informative:

man find

If you are good at subtracting dates you can do something like:
find . -mtime -185

All files modified in the last ~185 days.
