Another catch is that it returns days from 02-Jan-2002 to 01-Jan-2003,
rather than 01-Jan-2002 to 31-Dec-2002. Nor am I clear what the need for
the sed command is - simply using the format %m%d%y should be all that's
required... A little adjustment for leap years has also been added...
# Get number of days in year (by checking if Feb29 exists)
if[ `date +%d -d "Feb 01 + 28 day"` = "29" ]
# Iterate days
for ((a=0; a<$days;a++))
date +%m%d%y -d "Jan 01 + $a day"
Does that help?
