Linux Under Find Files Modified On Specific Date

Hello everyone;

How do I find out all files that have been modified on 2013-02-07 (07/Feb/2013) using find command under Linux / Apple OS X / *BSD and Unix like operating systems?

There are two ways to list files in given directory modified after given date of the current year. The latest version of GNU/find command use the following

Code:

Syntax

GNU/find latest version:

find /path/to/dir -newermt "date"
find /path/to/dir -newermt "Feb 07"
find /path/to/dir -newermt "yyyy-mm-dd"

## List all files modified on given date

find /path/to/dir -newermt yyyy-mm-dd ! -newermt yyyy-mm-dd -ls

### print all *.pl ###

find /path/to/dir -newermt "yyyy-mm-dd" -print -type f -iname "*.pl"

Sample photo:

find-newermt-option

The other way of doing this works on the versions of find before v4.3.3:

touch -t 02010000 /tmp/stamp$$
find /usr -newer /tmp/stamp$$
rm -f /tmp/stamp$$

Example

To find out all files that have been modified on 2013-02-07 (07/Feb/2013), enter:

find /path/to/dir -type f -name "*" -newermt 2013-02-07 ! -newermt 2013-02-08

Sample outputs:

./output/tmp/rss.js-gzip-10881623-407-1360173602
./images/bursa-bilgisayar.php
./images/faq/2013/02/ir-150x150.jpg

To find out all Python files (*.py) in /home/vivek/projects that have been modified on 2013-02-07 (07/Feb/2013),

enter:

find $HOME/projects -type f -name "*.py" -newermt 2013-02-07 ! -newermt 2013-02-08 -print

Pass the -ls option to get detailed file listing:

find $HOME/projects -type f -name "*.py" -newermt 2013-02-07 ! -newermt 2013-02-08 -ls

To find and delete all tmp files (*.tmp) in /home//projects that have been modified on 2013-02-07 (07/Feb/2013), enter:

find $HOME/projects -type f -name "*.py" -newermt 2013-02-07 ! -newermt 2013-02-08 -delete
