If you wan to find files or directories, that were last modified in the last n days or just today, it is really easy to do in Linux.
How to find files last modifies today
Use the find command to do this
find -maxdepth 1 -type f -mtime 1
maxdepth: will tell find to only search in the current folder
type: will tell find to only list files and not directories
mtime: will tell find to on
I would like to, from time to time, enable server-wide file monitoring that will show me all files being modified, updated and created while I have it running and thus simply spewing forth a list of files modified until I hit control-c.
This is specifically for a Linux server (CentOS 6.5).
Is there any way to overload or wrap the ls command so that it will highlight / underline / otherwise make obvious the last three modified files?
I know that I can simply ls -rtl to order by reverse modification time, but I usually do need an alphabetical list of files despite the fact that I would like to quickly identify the last file that myself or another dev modified.
This is a follow up on my previous question, here:
Windows modified memory without a pagefile - Super User
I have no pagefile and a lot of modified memory according to resource monitor (Win 7 x64). The answerer to my original question said that the modified memory must be written to the "backing store" and when I asked if he meant files on the disk he said yes.
