delete beginning field.

I want to script out deleting the first field of a file when it is created. I'm looking to store the output of an ls -l commad to a file but leaving off the permissions so when the file is opened I see something like;

2 bin bin 256 Feb 6 2005 mnt
5 root system 256 Feb 5 2005 home
9 root system 256 Feb 5 2005 someflie

so the display of -rwxrwxrwx is removed.

Thnak you
