listing directories and sub directories with time and name options

Hello all!

I'm looking to list directories and sub-directories of a path, on this forum I found this command:
Code:
find $path -type d -exec ls -ld {} \;

The issue I have is that with a simple ls, the list is listed by name, and using -t I get it by time.
How could I list directories and sub directories getting an output by name or by time?

Thanks!

-david

This print me date and time only.

What I'm looking for is to sort my list by name as ls would do on the first level:
ls -l1d

and have the option to sort it by time too:

ls -l1dt

but on all directories and sub directories too.

Hi Dude,

FYI,

Code:

Regards
shanmu
