Question

Hi

I would like to a long list of files up to a given date. I've tried:
ls -al > filelist
but this command gives me all the files. I've also have tried the find command:
find . -mtime -10 -type f -print > filelist
This gives me information on active file within the past 10 days and that's what I need, but I would also like the rwx information, size and date on the file as the long listing gives.

Can anyone help?
Thank you very much.

Try:

find . -mtime -10 -type f -exec ls -l {} \; >> filelist

Let me know if that works.

There are other ways, this is the first that comes to mind.

That just what I needed. Thanks
