Optimizing find command

http://stackoverflow.com – I have about a million files for which I need to get the filename, size, and date modified. Is there any improvement that can be done, performance-wise, on the following command to get this information? find ./ -exec ls -lh {} \; Note: I can exclude files such as ".file", ".trash/", and any folders themselves (i.e., I only need the file information). Update: Here are the results: $ time (find . -ls) real 0m5.947s user 0m0.393s sys 0m0.682s $ time (ls -lhR) real 0m14.208s user 0m0.978s sys 0m2.510s $ time (find ./ -exec ls -lh {} \;) way too long (HowTos)
