files modified within 1 day

> find -mtime -1

This will show files modified within the past day in the current directory. There is also a -ctime and -atime parameters available.

Normally users think of this in the opposite logic of finding files not modified in 10 days (for archive, etc...), and that would be
> find -mtime +10
