RE: [K12OSN] Help with script



Brian,

See code below... put in .sh script and run through cron (test please as
I haven't used this in a while!) Example Use:

clear-browsercache.sh /home 25

That should cycle through all the users under /home.... in our case, I
would run: clear-browsercache.sh /home/students 25 because students are
in a subdir.....

# This script clears the browser cache files for user directories under
the following directories:
# It takes 2 parameters:
#   <home> - The directory that holds the user homedirectories
#   <mtime> - Purge Cache files older than <mtime> days

# This finds all Mozilla/Firefox Cache files that are older than 30
days:
#find . -path "./*/.mozilla/*/*/Cache/*" -type f -mtime +30 -print

if [ $# -lt 2 ]; then
	echo "$0 <home> <mtime>"
	echo ""
	echo -e "\t<home> - The Directory that holds the user home
directories"
	echo -e "\t<mtime> - Purge cache files older than <mtime> days"
	echo "Example:"
	echo -e "\t$0 /home 10"

I'm trying to use the script on the k12ltsp wiki(1) to remove firefox
cache but the problem is that 
our students directories are in sub directories under /home_student e.g

/home_student
	tutorgroup
		2S-EG
		   k123456

How can I alter the script to descend into each if the sub directories
and wipe as it goes ??

Thanks
