I would just do this in the script itself - when it starts running have it figure out today and yesterday w/ some date manipulation.
what does the script do, and why do you need to pass it dates?
The script is the RedHat patch repository manager shell script, RedHatRepositoryManager.sh. The -checkUpdatesForChannel command requires start and end dates as parameters. Modifying the script itself isn't really an option since it just passes the command line through to a Java program. I guess I'll have to write a wrapper shell script.
Thanks for the help.

ah... so there's no ??NOW?? property available in bladelogic. jython/python has some decent date manipulation functions compared to shell (nsh/bash/etc)
