File Time (HH:MM:SS)

ls -al gives you the file listing and the time of the file is in HH:MM, but in this case, we need seconds as well and have no idea on how to get it to appear.

Any help anyone can give on this would be greatly appreciated.

Please email me at

Under Linux you can do "stat <I>filename</I>" to get verbose file information, including modification time down to the second. Other platforms probably have similar tools.
