I know there are quite a few IT guys here, so I'm sure some have more experience working in UNIX than I do. Here is my problem: Once a week I have a cronjob that runs to check the indexes on our Unidata database for corruption. I didn't build this script, I just know what it does. When the job runs, it creates a file in /tmp called index.err. # more index.err PHANTOM process 28579 started. COMO file is '_PH_/root23402_28579'. Inside that file, I get the name of the actual phantom process that runs. If I browse to _PH_ directory and view the root23402_28579 file that has all the information I need to see related to the index checker. I'd like to create a cronjob that will email me the contents of that file. I can easily use a mailx command to send the email, but the problem is that file name will change every week. Do any of you know how I can extract the file name in a variable to then call when I do my mailx command? Hopefully that all makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions.
