Inverse Date Specification

If you need to extract files older than a given date, you can do this by placing an exclamation point (!) immediately before the date specification on the command line. The exclamation point reverses the sense of the match. For example,

bru -x -n !14-Mar-92

will extract all files created or modified before March 14, 1992.
