Sorting files by time / date.


Hello.

I am looking for the best way to list files recursively and show me the lastest modified / created files.

For example if I wanted to start at '/' I want it to go down all the way through the complete file system and then in the end give me the top 10 or 20 latest modified files.

Can anyone give me an example at all?

Thanks alot to anyone
