I've just tested this. I know it works on the S3 4.2.1.... I'm not sure about other devices....
But it should be:
[HIGH]# Set today's date
# Deletes previous archive (as contained within index1.txt)
rm -rf $(cat /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/index1.txt)
# Moves previous backup to archive (index2 becomes index1 for delete next time)
mv /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/index2.txt /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/index1.txt
# Stamps new index 2
echo '/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/'$now > /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/index2.txt
# writes a command for recovery to read (creates index2 backup)
echo 'backup_rom("/sdcard/0/clockworkmod/backup/'$now'");' > /cache/recovery/extendedcommand[/HIGH]
But yes, instead of above, you could set external_sd where sdcard/0 is.
