List of last few edited files September 21, 2005

Posted by Carthik in commands, ubuntu.

Ever edited quite a few files, and started wondering what files you edited recently? Happened to me quite a few times. I search on google to find the file to edit to accomplish some purpose, edit it, save it, and get on with my work. Later, I find I want to edit it again, and can’t remember the files I edited last. To not repeat this in the future, let me make a note for myself:
$find -mtime 0

will list the last ‘n’ files edited.

$find -mtime 0 | more
will page the results.

I use
$ls -altr #pronounced “alter” in my head.
to get the most recent files at the bottom of the list of the current directory.

If the computer connected to the Internet is a Windows XP machine, will this work? Is there a program in XP (like FileZilla) that can download the required packages?
