Thanks for the suggestion.
That approach may be more work because one would need to keep track of the 
directory where one runs that.

I think I will get working on this. Find will do the work of traversing so I 
will just have to parse the output. Also using find gives a lot of 
flexibility with file selection since one can tell find to find only files 
older/newer than a certain date.
