These last two are nearly always identical, ugh. > Last accessed - ls -lu > Note that there is no "creation time" - it's actually just the inode change > time.

But now I can't figure out two things:  If I'm in a directory, and do "ls -alF" and see for example: drwx------ 2 pete users 512 Jun 22 13:41 myfiles/ What "ls" command can I do IN THE CURRENT WORKING DIRECTORY to just see the "myfiles/" listing? That is, if I type "ls -alF myfiles" (or myfiles/), why does the output delve *into* this directory and list its contents? The only work around is "ls -alF | grep myfiles" it seems!  What is the switch to see the full date and time output, instead of this information being truncated to "Dec 3 2002" instead of "Dec 3 2002 15:16:01" for example? -- Peter Leftwich President & Founder, Video2Video Services Box 13692, La Jolla, CA, 92039 USA http://Www.Video2Video.Com _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
