This the one code block-

There is one change in requirement wherein we need to purge the lines from file with current_date -1 , so if today's date is 12 Dec , it should simply open syslog file and check for that dates less than 11 dec and remove those lines.

Only records from 11 th Dec onwards should be there.

Can you show changes in code based on our requirement please.
