IMO, this can be solved by implementing -newerXY from BSD's find.

I'd also like to wishlist the ability to have -[acm]time function more like BSD's find in that you have a finer grained control over the time (eg in seconds)

P.S.  This is Wakko! =)

Resolving item2 in  #11668 would resolve this nicely and spare us to try to invent new (incompatible) command-line args for resolving the current wish, afaict.

No idea why I did not see that initially.

(BTW, thanks Jay for cleaning up and making this bug public.)

This started as http://bugs.debian.org/291419

Wakko Warner was looking for a way to find files with *time in the future, but did not want a simple boolean (which could be done with find -ctime +0 -or -print) but a way to e.g find files with mtime 2 years in the future.

Afact this is currently not possible.
