NEWER(1)							      NEWER(1)

NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     newer - command for testing modification dates of two files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/lib/desktop/newer file1 file2

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The newer command compares	the modification times (in seconds since
     00:00:00 UTC, Jan.	1, 1970) of the	two files given	as arguments.  If
     file1 was modified	more recently than file2, or if	either file does not
     exist, then the newer command returns a status of 0.  Otherwise it
     returns a status of 1.

     The /var/X11/xdm/Xsession.dt script uses the newer	command.  The newer
     command is	not intended to	be run directly	by the end user, unless	the
     user is writing shell scripts.

     For more information about	the entire IRIX	Interactive Desktop
     environment, see the IID(1) man page.
