    DATE in job_list filename: just month/day, just day, etc.

    • Article Type: General

    Description:
    DATE in job_list filename

    I can get the full date into a filename in job_list with %DATE, producing this:
    filename_20091123

    But what I want is just the numeric day of the month portion of the date, like this:
    filename_23

    Is there a way to do that?

    Resolution:
    Adding a suffix of `date '+%d'` will give you just the day:

    filename.`date '+%d'`

    Here are some tests you can do to see the different suffixes:

    Day:

    >cp test test.`date '+%d'`

    Note: you need to restart the job_daemon (util e/15) after updating job_list.
    Month/day:

    >cp test test.`date '+%m%d'`

    Month/day/hour/minute:

    >cp test test.`date '+%m%d.%H%M'`
