If you have GNU ls:
ls -l --time-style="+%Y%m%d%H%M"

It doesn't matter what shell you are using if you have the GNU version of ls. (I believe it is often installed on solaris; it certainly can be.)

Hello Deanne,

You most likely would be having perl .
try this.
ls -l dir | perl -wln -e 'split(/\s+/);@f1=split("-",$_[5]),@f2=split(":",$_[6]);print @f1,@f2'

where dir is the directory containing the files.

hi gaurav, thanks.
i tried your code and the following is what the shell returns:

Use of implicit split to @_ is deprecated at -e line 1.
Use of uninitialized value in split at -e line 1, <> line 1.
Use of uninitialized value in split at -e line 1, <> line 1.


Hmmm, sorry im perl clueless. please help.
thanks in advance.
