[K12OSN] some scripting help



Hello everyone,

I'm trying to convince my boss to expand K12LTSP services to include some PC's 
in the Children's Department (I work at a public Library) and a separate room 
we use to allow Chatting and Guest computers. But, before I can do the 
expansion, I need to come up with a way to copy Firefox Cache from each 
account to a single folder for his inspection. 

I was thinking that a script could do the job. Let me demonstrate what the 
script should do.

get this
/home/P042024/.../cache/somefilename

to this
/somefolder/P042024somefilename.jpg

Do it for every account on the server.

Scan all the home folders, find firefox cache and attach the account name to 
the beginning of the filename and attach ".jpg" to the end.

Maybe add to copy only files that are within two weeks

If I can get something like that and demonstrate it then I have the green 
light to expand Linux usage in out Library.

You know I'm have a Deja Vu moment. I thought I'd posted something like this 
before but I couldn't find it in the archives.

PS: I would like to learn scripting - any good books that you can recommend?
