Another aide-mémoire today, illustrated via a small script.
I was musing on file version numbering (yes I know about SVN et al, but sometimes they are overkill) and considered using the time represented as the number of seconds elapsed since the Unix Epoch, seems like a simple approach wrapped into the file and filename, what am I missing?
Oh yes, a handy way to remember CASE syntax in bash as well..
case $OS in
*) echo “Unable to determine *nix variant, so we bailed out.”
echo “Time, as seconds since Epoch `$DATE +%s`, OS determined to be $OS”
