Yes, sorry, I'm an idiot,  the '*[CEHh]' is the problem,
I cut and pasted some code w/o looking at it...


1. finding new files with 'find'

|> maui /usr/tomt/src/nms% cat >zzz
|> maui /usr/tomt/src/nms% ls -l zzz
|> -rw-r--r--  1 tomt            0 Jul 23 15:41 zzz
|> maui /usr/tomt/src/nms% find . -name '*.[CEHh]' -mtime -1 -ls
|> maui /usr/tomt/src/nms% find . -name '*.[CEHh]' -ctime -1 -ls

Well, since you told find to locate files whose names are '*.[CEHh]' AND whose
mtime/ctime is less than 1 day, it does not surprise me that find failed to
list the file named "zzz", which does not meet the file name requirements you

How about this:

cats% cat > zzz.C
cats% ls -l zzz.C
-rw-rw-r--  1 jik             0 Jul 23 17:55 zzz.C
cats% find . -name '*.[CEHh]' -mtime -1 -ls
26891    0 -rw-rw-r--  1 jik      101             0 Jul 23 17:55 ./zzz.C
cats% find . -name '*.[CEHh]' -ctime -1 -ls
26891    0 -rw-rw-r--  1 jik      101             0 Jul 23 17:55 ./zzz.C

It seems to me to work just fine.
