This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I wanted to copy these files to a different location with the filename being only till the "Z" i.e.; this file ap_aearo_prod.20091104044210.Z.20091106.212217 has to be copied as ap_aearo_prod.20091104044210.Z, have to truncate the part after the Z.
I have set of files under this directory. This set of files can be identified by the combination of ap_*_prod*20091106* as I need only these files from this datestamp, I have unwanted files with the same datestamp as well.
