http://unix.stackexchange.com – I need a shell script which finds files which are created 1 hour before or 1 hour after a particular file (test.txt) was created. If I go with find -newer, that means I'd have to create a temporary file, use touch to change the time on that 1 hour before the creation time of the test.txt file, and then use -newer tempFile to find the files which are newer than the tempFile, ultimately finding the files which are created 1 hour before the test.txt file. Then I have to go back through that process to find those an hour or more older than the file I'm interested in. That seems like a lot of ext (HowTos)
