Display files by date (descending)
 
Hi all,

I have been trying to display the contents of a directory with "ls" but I can't seem to be able to sort the files by descending date order.

Code:

ls -utla
seems to be doing what I want it to do but I need the reverse of that....

Never mind... I found it:

Code:

ls -utlr
seems to do the trick

The -r switch reverses the order..

In MAN page:

Quote:


-r Reverses the order of sort to get reverse alphabetic
or oldest first as appropriate.

Thank you :)

Code:

-r, --reverse
      reverse order while sorting

Edit: too late! ;)
