NAME
       yesterday - print file names from the dump

SYNOPSIS
       yesterday [ -cCd	] [ -n daysago ] [ -date ] files ...

DESCRIPTION
       Yesterday  prints  the  names  of  the files from the most recent dump.
       Since dumps are done early in the morning, yesterday's files are	really
       in today's dump.	 For example, if today is February 11, 2003,

	      yesterday	/home/am3/rsc/.profile

       prints

	      /dump/am/2003/0211/home/am3/rsc/.profile

       In  fact,  the  implementation is to select the most recent dump	in the
       current year, so	the dump selected may not be from today.

       By default, yesterday prints the	names of the dump files	 corresponding
       to the named files.  The	first set of options changes this behavior.

       -c     Copy the dump files over the named files.

       -C     Copy the dump files over the named files only when they differ.

       -d     Run diff to compare the dump files with the named	files.

       The date	option selects other day's dumps, with a format	of 1, 2, 4, 6,
       or 8 digits of the form d, dd, mmdd, yymmdd, or yyyymmdd.

       The -n option selects the dump daysago prior to the current day.

       Yesterday does not guarantee that the string it	prints	represents  an
       existing	file.

EXAMPLES
       See what's changed in the last week in your profile:

	      yesterday	-d -n 7	~/.profile

       Restore your profile from yesterday:

	      yesterday	-c ~/.profile

FILES

SOURCE
       /usr/local/plan9/bin/yesterday

BUGS
       It's hard to use	this command without singing.
