read the man page for "find" carefully.
Watch out for the Manners Taliban!
Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

You can use find for this purpose.

# find -type f -name "*-09712" -atime +1 -print0 | xargs -0 rm -f

FYI,

-atime n
File was last accessed n*24 hours ago. When find figures out how many 24-hour periods ago the file was last accessed, any frac-
tional part is ignored, so to match -atime +1, a file has to have been accessed at least two days ago.


Best Regards.
