Dear Anju,

to get the timestamp of a file, try this,

ls -l filename|awk '{print $6$7$8}'

then the result will be in the format of MonDDYY
here in the place of YY u'll get the time of the file creation if the file get created within 6 months. if the file got created before 6 months then in the place of YY value will be the year(2007 etc)

Regards,
Pankaj
