Fast daily report bash script

I prefer to create a small asciidoc file as my daily report with minimum information about what I have done and some small notes and labels on what I have done.

Several times a day, I have to revert back to daily report and update it. To speed it up, I created this naive shell script.

It simply checks if the daily report file exists for today. If it does not exists, it copy one template, updates the date to today and return the full file in any case.

using this alias

alias edr=”emacs `~/opt/dr`”

I can create or update the daily report with 4 keystrokes.
