Are you sure about the last? It's been around three years since I last
used Solaris, but I remember 'ls -lu' as showing the access time, not
the modification time. Certainly GNU ls on my Linux box behaves that way.
GNU ls has a nice --time-style option. E.g.
$ ls -l --time-style=long-iso pl
-rw-r--r-- 1 pat pat 1682 2003-12-01 01:18 pl
$ ls -l pl
-rw-r--r-- 1 pat pat 1682 Dec 1 2003 pl
Of course, that doesn't help unless one has GNU ls somewhere on one's
Solaris box. :-(
