in thread Unix disk space reports

I agree my script does limit general usage; however, I was working to get a report that had the format I wanted for my boss. As for keeping the temp files I usualy keep them until I'm very sure I'm getting everything I what out of the script. I guess I just live in debugland.

    I want the same kind of report which has the capablity of showing the diskpace status for the past month. Can some help?

      You could start by showing us where in your code you have difficulties. As the program currently just displays the status quo, I imagine you have to collect the disk space report over time. Then, create your report from that.

      Personally, I would store that data in a database, for example DBD::SQLite, and then create the reports from that database using Querylet. But you can get by without a relational database if you hardcode the reporting logic into your script.
