Currently I have something like this:
./player_script |grep "videoname" >> log.log &
The output of
player_script shows when a video starts and ends,
grep then takes only certain video file names and puts them into
log.log will look something like this:
video <videoname> is playing now video <videoname> ended video <videoname> is playing now video <videoname> ended
... and so on.
What I need is the timestamp of when the file starts and ends on each new line, in this format:
Feb 28 15:35:32 video <videoname> is playing now
I also need the date on the log file:
This is being run on Solaris 5.8 & 5.9.
