    TCSH Help

    I'm using TCSH and I'm having some trouble with one of the exercises in my textbook. Assuming that I'm currently in the directory "users/hq/sbane/", I want to create a command string that will list ALL of the file entries in this directory with a last modification date of September 20. Oh, and I MUST use grep in the command.

    What command string would I use?

    I'm thinking along the lines of:

    ls -al | grep "Sep 20"
    But this does not work.

    Any hints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    How does it not work?

    My brother, good morning: my sister, good night.
