I'm trying to arrange the files in a directory to have modification dates
according to alphabetical sort order. (Sounds weird, but Alpine car units use
modification date as the ordering of music tracks on a USB stick.)
In bash I'm using:
ls -1 | sort | touch *
...but it doesn't work, there is no change in the modification date of the
files. I'm guessing the problem is that the filenames have spaces, so the
'touch *' is only touching the first word of the filename.
Is there a way to do this?
