How can I find files by date or size from stout?

Hello all
I wander if I make for example "
PHP Code:
 ls -
And it gives me all the files in the directory with the additional info like data size and privileges
But what if I like to filter the stout result for example by date
When I try to do:
PHP Code:
echo "`ls -l`" grep "Jan 12" 
it gives me the result but without any line breaks..
Is there any better way to perform this filter?

you can use the find command

For the case you mentioned, revise it so:
ls -l | grep "Jan 12"

cheers, makyo
