Times listed by ls.


From find man page:
measure times (for -amin, -atime, -cmin, -ctime, -mmin, and
-mtime) from the beginning of today rather than from 24 hours
ago. This option only affects tests which appear later on the
command line.
From ls man page:
with -l, show time as WORD instead of modification time: atime
-u, access -u, use -u, ctime -c, or status -c; use specified
time as sort key if --sort=time

How many times are there associated with a file and what are they? Thanks in advance.

That's actually wrong. Linux doesn't have a concept of
creation time; c stands for "change", and refers to the
time something happened to the file on inode level.



ls, time
