Please do not bump your posts.

And the behaviour of ls is such that the year is displayed only for files older than 6 months. If you want the year for files less than 6 months old, you will have to write a program either in C/perl/python that does the task.

The basic system call that you will use is stat(2). You can check the man page for more details. In the structure that stat(2) returns, you will find st_mtime. This is the time in seconds since 00:00:00 UTC, Jan. 1, 1970 that the file was modified. You can pass that onto ctime(3) that will convert the time into a human readable format.
