Have you ever wanted to find all the files below your current directory and sort them by thier last modification time? Try this:
find . -printf "%T+\t%p\n" | sortHere is the breakdown:
%T is file's last modification time in the format specified by k, which is the same as for %A. By the way, %A could be used to sort by access times instead of modification times.
+ means render the date and time, separated by "+", for example "2013-02-22+08:19:06.3877437110".
\t is a tab character
%p is the file name
All of this information and more might be gleaned by typing "man find" and searching for the section describing "printf" and its options.
Hope that helps.
