How to list files Created in last 2 hrs

I wanted to know what command should I use to see the files created in last 2 hours in a given directory.

I know to see the files changed in last one day I can use this:
find /admin//dump -type f -ctime -1 -print | xargs ls -lt|pg

However I am not getting what should I use if I wanted tol ist all the files created in last 2 hours.

Use touch to change a file data on a temp file in your directory
then use find.

cat "hi " >  t.tmp
# set the file time to 2 hours ago
touch -t 200405121120  t.tmp 
find /admin//dump -type f  -newer t.tmp -print -exec ls -lt {} \; | pg

This looks good but I am not able to understand this command...can you explain it?

t.tmp is a sample file that you are creating at 11.20 and then listing all the files after that particular time stamp... thats why you are using -newer t.tmp

You can modify the timestamp of a file using

touch -t yyyymmddhhmm filename
