can some one help me in writing a shell script to monitor 2 folders every night, and automatically send an e-mail(with the newly created folder names) if any new folder is created in those 2 folders

folder paths : // and //

for example. If a new folder named 1802 is created under the //, the email which will be sent at night should contain that folder name. If multiple folders are created, then all those folder names must be emailed.

thanks in advance

Please note that Java Ranch is NotACodeMill. Also, EaseUp.

Having said that, you are more likely to get some help if you post the script you have put together so far and describe what parts you are having problems with.
