Is it possible to run a command in Linux which will show me files which
have been modified or created in the last X days ?
I use this feature regularly in a competing commercial OS since it
allows me to see what has happened on a machine when I have set up a new
application, or when something is misbehaving. Normally it just turns
up log files and stuff, but at least I can see what has been written to
the disk without having to try to work out where it should be . . .
Not sure if that is clear, but basically what I am looking for is a
feature which will go through a whole disk and dump out a list of files
with modified or created dates within a certain range.
I'm sure it must be out there somewhere.
I could share it out using Samba and then run the checks from NT, but it
would be nice to do it natively.
