Well,I m trying to list the number of files created today and the count the number of lines in those files.I have to do it in unix.Please suggest how to write script for this.


To find the number of lines:

find / -type f -ctime 0 -mtime 0 -print0 | xargs -0 wc -l

This is almost what you want. There is no file created time in Unix, this is approximation with both file status changed time and file modified time.

If you would like to search only in certain directory, replace / with /path/to/your/dir.

To find the number of files:

find / -type f -ctime 0 -mtime 0 | wc -l
