Daily downloads are stored in a directory.
A script has been created which counts how many files reside in this folder.
The part I am struggling with is deleting the oldest file in the directory if the number of files exceeds seven.
How should I proceed?
# If I tared it up would the target exist tar_file=$FTP_DIR/`basename $newest`.tar if [-s "$tar_file" ] then echo Files Found else echo No files fi # tar it up tar -cf tar_file.tar $newest # how many tar files do I now have fc=$(ls | wc -l) echo $fc # If more than 7 delete the oldest ones
