Date/Time in command line


Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to get tcadmin to put the current date and time in a command line? For some log files, you have to specify the name of the logfile, and when it includes the date, I can't figure out how to put said date in.

yes, thats what i'm saying. I want to include the current date and time as part of the log file name. and that has to be specified in the command line. I can't figure out how to get tcadmin to parse the command line in such a way as to include the date and time.

Ok... maybe an example will help..


In my command line ( for linux server ), lets say its -run -server -log DATEGOESHERE


What variable or value do I need to use to get it to replace DATEGOESHERE with the.. date. I tried `date %y-%m-%d` but it just processes that directly and doesn't replace it with the actual date.
