What have you tried?

The basic command would be something like:
Code:
find / -mmin -120

although you probably want some more options.

What have you tried, and not working?

Solaris version of find that is included with Solaris 10 and below does not support "-mmin" option. What you can use to work around that is use touch with option "-t" and proper time specification to create a file which modification time is two hours in the past. Then use find with "-newer" option and the newly created filename as it's argument to find all the files that were modified in the last two hours.

Hello,

I am not creating any file myself. I just wanted to get the files which are created by the application past 2 hours. So, touch is not possible.

Thanks.

Is it forbidden to create any new file? For example in /tmp?

Hello,
I wanted to search the files under application. So, can not create myself anything. creating files under /tmp is not applicable.

Thanks.

Then install the GNU Utilities.
