Code:
ls -l
Will show the last modified date, along with other things, such as permissions and size.

ls will list all files in a dir.

ls -l is the long listing of all files.
ls -ltr will sort the files by time modified in reverse order so that the latest mod'ed files will appear at the bottom of the list. very handy.

Hi.

I suggest looking at http://www.softpanorama.org/Tools/Fi...s_by_age.shtml followed by man find ... cheers, makyo

PS Better titles will attract more interest and responses, e.g. How can I find files modified today?
